In Northwest Georgia, Promotoras En La Comunidad

Sep 14, 2021

In Dalton, the Coalition of Latino Leaders serves the Latino community of Northwest Georgia.

Last month, the Whitfield County Board of Commissioners approved funding for what are known as “promotoras” - health care educators who speak Spanish - who will engage with the community to provide information on COVID-19 vaccines as well as testing.
