In partnership with Arizona Living Well Institute and AmeriCorps, Creciendo Unidos is offering workshops in Spanish of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program and the Managing your Diabetes Workshops.
Both programs are evidence-based and were developed by Stanford University. Each workshop gives participants the opportunity to learn about their role in taking care of their health, helping them incorporate healthy habits in their everyday lives: healthy nutrition, ejercise, managing your symptoms and having better communication with your doctor.
Each workshop is six weeks long, two and a half hour sessions per week.

Creciendo Unidos (CU) in collaboration with Urban Strategies and Latino Best Start, through a grant by W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is helping Hispanic families in the Phoenix area improve their health and their family’s well-being through the Health Promotores Program.
CU has a team of volunteer leaders that are working as community health workers, providing educational workshops and information to support our participating families in making changes to improve their health and decrease/manage the illnesses attacking our community. Our promotores also connect their families to important resources and events such as health fairs, exercise and nutrition programs, family, couples and youth programs and places to obtain medical care at an affordable cost. Our promotores are also connected with a network of service providers that CU works in collaboration with, to refer families/individuals that require specialized care: depression, alcohol or substance abuse, domestic violence and other behavioral health issues.
