Summary: In this work we describe some aspects of the Outreach Project "Rural Health: Promotion and prevention in the city limits. Contribution to the training of health promoters". We developed it during the year 2017, with the participation of 6th and 7th year students of the Agricultural Technical School No. 1, located in Florencio Varela, province of Buenos Aires. The main objective of this project was to promote community health practices based on the training of the students as rural health promoters. Ten workshops were held with the participation of students, teachers and Professionals from the Schools of Social Work, Fine Arts and Veterinary Sciences of the UNLP, SENASA and INTA. They worked with the concepts of prevention and health promotion and sought to rescue popular knowledge and practices, relating them to social determinations of the living conditions of the community. As a result of the workshops, the students prepared a series of brochures with the main subjects dealt with in order to prevent and promote health in their community.
