“So grateful for this opportunity!”
 
For years, Promotora Betty Angeles has been an inspiring volunteer health educator for William Sansum Diabetes Center. Now, she is part of our staff!
 
“My family was so proud of me and I am so grateful for this opportunity,” said Angeles.  “It is something special you feel inside of you. After all of the hard work with the community, you have your recognition." 
 
The Promotoras are local Latina women who have been trained as peer health advocates. Angeles is one of several Promotoras moving into a new opportunity as staff at William Sansum Diabetes Center.
