Yesterday was an important day for our Promotores. They learned all different kinds of bandaging and stabilization. Sometimes they practices on the brigade members and sometimes on each other. They also received intensive instruction in nutrition from the nutritionists who are also part of our team.
Since metabolic disorders such as diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure are extremely common here, education in this area is a very high priority, so our Promotores can share their knowledge with their neighbors. Malnutrition during pregnancy and early childhood development is also a problem here so it is easy to see why this part of the training program is of vital importance!
