Presentation Overview:

NIEHS-funded programs have played cutting edge roles in the development and implementation of "Train the Trainer" strategies. Superfund Research Program grantees at the University of Arizona have trained community health advocates (promotoras) on topics including pesticides, arsenic, environmental toxicology, and fate and transport of environmental contaminants. Denise Moreno Ramirez will discuss her work to develop and test training modules appropriate for promotora groups in Arizona, Sonora, and the US-Mexico Border region. Worker Education and Training grantees provide hazardous materials first responder training to Native American Tribes. Kenny Oldfield from Jefferson State Community College and April Sells from the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, Alabama, will discuss their work in building an emergency response capability not just for the tribe but also for their region of the state.
