Alzheimer's Association Promotores are volunteer community engagers that raise awareness of Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to resources. Promotores are traditionally known as connectors, educators, mentors, counselors, peer leaders, patient navigators or health advocates and serve as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and the Hispanic/Latino community. Promotores:
- Represent the Alzheimer's Association at a minimum of 12 events / per year distributing Alzheimer’s Association literature at events or appearances in your local community.
- Offer 20-minute Introduction to Alzheimer’s presentations within your community or neighboring Hispanic/Latino communities.
- Promote support groups, education programs, Alzheimer & Brain Awareness Month, Walk to End Alzheimer’s, or The Longest Day using your local connections, bulletin boards, social media and physical displays in your community.
- Connect the Alzheimer's Association to new community organizations and connect people with additional Association services and volunteer opportunities.
