crowd chronic wound tweetchat

You might know that health inequities, such as a lack of access to health care, housing, or transportation, prevent Latinos and other people of color from getting a fair opportunity to live their healthiest. These inequities can cut deeply, and for a long time. Some experts compare these inequities to a “chronic wound” that doesn’t heal in a timely or expected way, with both little progress and many long-term health consequences. Let’s use #SaludTues on Feb. 2, 2021, to tweet about how advocates, planners, and other leaders can take action to solve the chronic wound of health inequities!

#SaludTues Tweetchat 12/8: Fight the Flu with Vaccines & More This Holiday Season


Woman COVID-19 Vaccine

This year more people than ever have already gotten a flu vaccine in hopes of preventing a "Twindemic" of both the flu and COVID-19. Right now, it's especially important for Latinos to get vaccinated since flu vaccination rates are typically lower among this group and flu related hospitalizations are higher. Latinos are also at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases which when combined with the flu can be deadly. If you or someone you care for has not been vaccinated yet, there's still time, but we must work to get the word out! Together we can work to stop the spread of the flu this holiday season!
