Reminder: LaSA welcomes Teresa Andrews, M.S., this Friday
The Latino Staff Association (LaSA) invites all UCOP colleagues to addend its next Charlas de Café (Coffee Chat) featuring Teresa Andrews, M.S., Education and Outreach Specialist, Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety (WCAHS), UC Davis.
During this event — taking place Friday, March 5, from 10-10:50 a.m. — Teresa will share how WCAHS staff are working to educate farmworkers and other agricultural workers on how to keep themselves healthy and safe while working in the fields during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Teresa has extensive experience working with cultural minorities, including developing educational materials and conducting training. Her experience includes collaborating with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to develop culturally sensitive materials on nutrition and physical activity, which were used by community health workers to help people build skills to make practical, lasting changes and help fight disease.
At Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety, she has forged collaborative links with Hispanic farmworker groups, growers, farm labor contractors, community organizations, employers and insurance personnel. She has developed low-literacy educational materials and conducted training sessions in both English and Spanish for farmworker children, dairy workers, farmers and others.
