Dr. Arelis Moore organized a lecture by Rut E. Rivera and Antonia Camacho, PASOs Greenville (November 19, 2019)
Rut E. Rivera, Manager, Greenville PASOs Program, Prisma Health | Accountable Communities, and Antonia Camacho, Community Health Worker, PASOs Greenville, were invited by Dr. Arelis Moore to her SPAN 4190 class (Health and the Hispanic Community) to discuss healthy children, knowledgeable families, and strong communities. PASOs’ Community Health Workers (CHW) trainings cover a wide range of pertinent information regarding Latino experiences and cultures, resources available to families, outreach techniques, and immigrant rights. By providing a platform for oftentimes unheard voices, this initiative actively engages the strengths of Latino community leaders for contributing to a statewide overall well-being. PASOs works with agencies, organizations and coalitions to make sure that they are serving Latino patients and clients effectively. As advocates for their communities, PASOs brings forward the perspective of Latino families and brings ideas for change to decision-makers. PASOs helps build a stronger South Carolina by supporting Latino communities with education, advocacy, and leadership development. For more information, please visit: https://www.scpasos.org/
