By 2050, 1 in 3 people in the U.S. will be Latino.
Yet Latinos suffer health inequities and higher burdens of certain health conditions compared to whites.
SaludToday is an interactive blog and social media campaign to raise awareness about Latino health issues and build capacity for health behavior changes among Latinos.
SaludToday, developed by Dr. Amelie Ramirez and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at the University of Texas Health San Antonio (formerly UT Health Science Center at San Antonio), brings you the latest stories, research, and news on different aspects of Latino health, including cancer, obesity, health equity, and how to grow a culture of health.
SaludToday also features content from Dr. Ramirez’s other projects:
- Salud America!, a national online network seeking policy solutions to Latino childhood obesity.
- Redes En Acción, a national online research network to prevent Latino cancer.
- Éxito! Latino Cancer Research Leadership Training, a program to increase the number of Latinos who pursue a doctoral degree and cancer research.
- Quitxt, a free quit-smoking service using text messages to help you kick the habit.
Together we can make huge leaps in improving Latino health!
