San Antonio — The San Antonio Independent School District’s board gave Health Confianza, a community-wide health project, approval to begin offering its health literacy training and curriculum at SAISD schools.
Health Confianza will start by providing its Ambassador program training to faculty, staff and school leaders, which will equip them to deliver health literacy curriculum in a Community Health Club format. After training, Health Confianza Ambassadors will be ready to launch and facilitate their own Community Health Clubs, a free club format where members and facilitators do activities and discuss timely health topics, including COVID, mental health, nutrition and more. The goal of both Ambassador training and Community Health Clubs is to improve health literacy – the ability to find, understand and use health information – for better health outcomes for all.
The partnership will enable Health Confianza to reach teachers, school nurses and students in grades 9-12.
