Thanks to the success of the program and to the engagement of our group of promotores, Lideres de Salud was re-funded in July 2007 for 2-1/2 years. In Phase II, Lideres de Salud continued to work to improve the health of Latino children in the county by training promotores de salud at two of three partner sites and by working to improve communication between health care providers and administrators and the Latino communities in the county. Even though our funding ended in December 2009, this initiative continues thanks to funds leftover from Phase I. We are seeking funding to continue our work. We have an amazing group of promotores eager to continue with our innovative program.
