We welcome Lorena Flores this month as our Latino Outreach Worker. Lorena has been working in the public health field with the Latino community in Western North Carolina since 1998. She loves to travel and learn about new cultures. She also enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and 5 year old son. Lorena will be working with community partners to plan outreach events in migrant farmworker camps, churches and Latino community centers in the WNC region. Please contact her if you have interest in participating as a volunteer in this kind of outreach work.
