Pilot – Community Health Worker Advocacy Training

Last year, Soda Creek was part of a team that wrote the statewide competency training for community health workers. One of the competencies that we wrote was an 8-hour training on advocacy. It included how to advocate for others, influence systems, and work for change in practices and policy. This month, the training was piloted with navigators from University of New Mexico – Health Science Center’s Pathways program. Venice Ceballos, one of the trainers and a CHW manager at Project ECHO, told us the pilot was a success and the content and activities were very well received by participants.
