An article from the Journal of Community Health Nursing. Provides an organizational assessment and analysis of the role of promotores (lay health workers) could offer to a system of federally-sponsored community health clinics along the U.S./Mexico border in which the Chronic Care Model (which delivers improved care for the chronically ill) is being used. Goal of a collaboration between promotores and the CCM would be to address cultural barriers to chronic illness care encountered by minority populations.
