Dr. Julio (left) reviews concepts and answers questions for the promotoras. During this launch, near Ojuelos, Jalisco, the four villages of La Granja, Morenitos, La Presa and Salitrillo sent women elected by those communities to receive training. As you can see in the photo, some of the promotora’s children joined them and even learned CPR. Each promotora on graduation day received their medical kits and a diploma.
The medical kits contain bandages, a stethoscope, a baumanometer, an instrument kit, first aid supplies, vitamins, anti-parasitics, anti-spider venom, a manual respirator, IV supplies, rehydration solution, antihistamines, and many other medicines.
