Esperanza's Healthy Breathing Program exemplifies one of our core missions: to elevate health equity and access to care particularly for the disenfranchised population in South Los Angeles. Compelled to take action once her son started experiencing asthma attacks, Ana Tajera joined our program to receive the proper training and education about maintaining a healthy home for her family. If you are interested in becoming a health advocate with a passion to help, serve and support the community, consider applying to our Promotores de Salud Training Program (deadline is next Tuesday, October 15). #community #LA #LosAngeles #SouthLA #SouthLosAngeles #health #healthequity #healthybreathing #promotora #promotoras #asthmaawareness #ashtmaprevention
