Current Projects

CREA Results Partnership

Funding Source: 

Susan G. Koment Colorado



This is a public private partnership, with projects funded through a variety of mechanisms primarily for the collection and disbursement of funds related to activities related to community outreach, education, navigation and research by CREA Results and their promotores de salud team in Colorado. The overall project goal is to recruit, train and employ Promotores de Salud/Community Health Workers (who are members of the community fluent in and sensitive to the Latino language and culture) as a bridge between providers of health care services and the community. These Promotores de Salud will then provide culturally responsive breast health education [already approved by Susan G. Komen for the Cure] to underserved populations and reduce barriers to screening through behavior modification, self-empowerment and call to action.
