Defensoras: Healthcare Advocate Training

Defensoras: Healthcare Advocate Training, launched in mid 2021, is a robust cohort (in English and Spanish) style training program that will provide the participants knowledge, capacity, and skills needed to effectively engage with the healthcare system. The program is designed with 10 core modules that explore topics that include patient’s rights and healthcare justice. Our program aims to build power among communities that are equipped, not only to take charge in the aspects related to their health, but also ready to collectively organize and become change agents primed to dismantle health inequities in Santa Clara County.
