Promise Community Health Center cree que la salud comienza en su propio entorno: en su casa, en su lugar de trabajo o en la escuela. Las entrenadoras de la salud poblacional sirven como recurso, gestor de atención, asesor y maestro para las personas, los proveedores y la comunidad en general.
Nuestros educadoras de salud de Promise trabajan individualmente con las personas y sus familias en el entorno de la clínica para evaluar las necesidades de salud, el entorno y las barreras para mejorar la salud. Al hacerlo, ayudan a sus pacientes a establecer un plan y los guían a ellos y a sus familias en el proceso para lograr el plan. También colaboran estrechamente con los recursos locales y estatales para garantizar que cada persona reciba el apoyo que necesita.
El equipo de salud de la población de Promise Community Health Center está formado por 5 miembros. Steph Van Ruler es la Gerente del Equipo de Salud Poblacional, Kim Davelaar, Amanda Rickard forman parte del equipo de Enfermeras Educadoras de la salud y Ruth es nuestra Navegadora de Salud Poblacional.

Through collaborative efforts with the medical team, Promise Community Health Center is screening and identifying patients at high risk for prediabetes. Prediabetes is a unique period of time when your blood sugar is slightly elevated, but not high enough yet to be considered diabetes. According to the CDC, 84.1 million Americans (1 in 3) have prediabetes yet 90% are unaware of this. When identified as having prediabetes, the Population health team will provide education, support and referral to Diabetes Prevention programs.
