Healthcare/Salud

Mano a Mano
Healthcare Project Objectives

What? Conduct Health Fairs and Media Strategies to provide comprehensive education about healthcare and social services resources available to our residents.

Who?
Promotoras and healthcare/social services agencies, and at least 200 Brownsville residents per year seeking healthcare resources.

How? Have four health fairs throughout the year, and create a media plan which supports the educational efforts of this objective.

Why?
The feedback we have received from residents during the first years of our project is that healthcare services are disjointed and many people have difficulty navigating through the different agencies to obtain comprehensive healthcare. By educating our residents about all the services available and the qualifying guidelines, we will be able to improve the overall health of our community.

Mano a Mano
Objetivos para el proyecto de Salud

Que? Dar educación completa sobre los cuidados médicos y servicios sociales disponibles para nuestros residentes por medio de ferias de salud, televisión o la radio.

Quien? Promotoras y agencias de salud/servicios sociales y por lo menos 200 residentes de Brownsville por año que busquen recursos para cuidados médicos.

Como? Hacer hasta cuatro ferias de salud durante el año y crear un plan para reunir a los medios públicos.

Por que? La información que hemos recibido de nuestros residentes durante los primeros años del proyecto demuestran que la mayoría tienen dificultas para obtener los servicios médicos necesarios. Educando a nuestros residentes sobre todos los servicios disponibles mejoraremos la salud de la comunidad.
