RUTH CAROLINA LOPEZ OCHOA is one of two Teach for Health program coordinators for the 2011-2012 year. Carolina is a very active and dedicated health promoter, both in her community and during workshops with promoters from other communities. She is one of six promoters who volunteered to be part of the recruitment committee in 2011. This group developed the strategy used by the program to recruit 40 new promoters, including promoters from 5 vulnerable communities not previously involved in the program. Almost all of these new promoters were elected by their communities during recruitment visits which were arranged and facilitated by the recruitment team. As program coordinator, she is excited to help strengthen and develop the promoter network and to take an active role in the development and facilitation of our July workshops with the health promoters.
