Wonderful news! The UFRC’s PASOs SC partner has received recognition for two out of five of its programs from the AMCHP, a “national resource, partner, and advocate for state public health leaders and others working to improve the health of women, children, youth and families, including those with special health care needs.”
For PASOs’ Health Connections Program, they received the title of Best Practice. This status indicates a program resulting “from a rigorous process of peer review and evaluation that indicates effectiveness in improving public health outcomes for a target population,” according to the AMCHP. The Promising Practice status was awarded to their Connections for Child Development Program.
More information on the Best and Promising Practice statuses can be found on the AMCHP’s website linked here.
If you didn’t know, PASOs is Spanish for steps. This community-based organization works with the Latino population in South Carolina, promoting education, leadership development, health, and advocacy. These four areas serve as steps towards “a strong, healthy South Carolina.” – PASOs.
