Abstract
Project Aim: To create a system of community health workers formed by the parents of adolescent mothers in the Pharr, San Juan, Alamo (PSJA) school district at Sonia M. Sotomayor Early College High School in Pharr, Texas. This project will focus on training the parents of teen mothers as “promotoras” or Hispanic community advocates and health workers. The goal is to develop a culturally competent and sustainable promotora training program to decrease health and social disparities surrounding the healthcare and resources for teenage pregnancy.
