The Windsor Essex Community Health Centre Health Promoters assist the vulnerable population of Windsor Essex with the social determinants of health in mind. They support individuals to recognize their potential, gain control of their health and make improvements in their current health status.
Together the inter-professional team members and the health promoters follow a wholistic approach towards client care. They encourage a healthy lifestyle that will benefit the client’s day to day life in all aspects: physical, mental and spiritual.
Health Promoters develop, implement, and evaluate programs that are aimed at achieving optimal health for their clients. Through this approach they are constantly incorporating the community needs, client input and identified gaps in service to modify and develop programs that meet the specific needs of our community.
Overall, Health Promotion involves a number of different approaches. It can be accomplished through the five action areas of Health Promotion:
- building health public policy
- creating supportive environments
