Program Summary:
Puentes de Salud's Charla program features weekly discussions, or charlas, on a wide range of topics, led by volunteers in the Puentes clinic. The charlas are informative talks through which we engage the patients to discuss topics that affect the Latino community in South Philadelphia. Topics include education, legal rights, wellness, and chronic illnesses such as cholesterol, diabetes, nutrition, and cardiovascular health. Charlas are given in the form of a conversational and enthusiastic presentation entirely in Spanish every Monday and Wednesday at 7:00pm and last ~20-30 minutes in length. Volunteers will have the unparalleled opportunity to work and to learn at the intersection of healthcare, social justice, migration, and education in a community-based environment. This is a great opportunity to get connected with the Puentes team and its partner organizations; develop your public speaking skills and Spanish at the same time; and most importantly to help invigorate and empower the health and wellness of this vibrant community.
