Hey! I’m Lizette, co-founder of Baja Wine Tour for a Cause. My brother Tony and I established Baja Wine Tour for a Cause because we’re both passionate about good wine, our Mexican heritage, and supporting causes we believe in. Health, education, arts, and equality have always been pillars of my existence. I want to quickly share with you where I learned the importance of health education.
When Tony and I were children, our mom worked as a health promoter at a low-income community clinic that provided free breast exams to neighborhood women without medical insurance. After school, I would walk over to the clinic to help my mom explain the paperwork process to the women who barely understood her broken English. My mom also hosted educational seminars about the importance of breast self-exams. She practiced the presentations in front of Tony and me, her captive audience, and it was during these presentations that I realized the power of sharing health education with our community.
