The Denan Project announced that training of more than 20 Native American medical community health nurses, paraprofessionals, and health technicians begins today as part of its support for young mothers and their families at the three Navajo communities of Chinle, Pinon, and Tsaile in Arizona, where 43% of the population lives below the poverty level. Once trained, these health workers will provide a series of home-based lessons to expectant and young mothers. By the end of the first year, the program will support 150 at-risk families in their homes, a number slated to grow in subsequent years.
