The Healthy Pima team is currently on track to implement the Pasos Adelante curriculum in January 2015, a tested curriculum that focuses on chronic disease prevention that is culturally appropriate for Spanish speaking immigrant and non-immigrant populations. The curriculum will be delivered to promotoras, or community health workers. The team plans on creating additional training modules focused on health insurance literacy, housing, and food insecurity. In conjunction with these updates and in an attempt to address food deserts, the team will also support updates to urban agricultural zoning regulations in Pima County to allow for increased ability to produce, raise and sell local produce, eggs and dairy products.
