Most of us know what rehabilitation is. It is care that can help you get back to normal or improve skills after a disease or injury.  

Unfortunately, rehab only takes place retroactively—after there is an issue.  

Prehabilitation, however, focuses on health before there is a problem. 

Loriana Hernandez-Aldama, an Emmy award-winning journalist, author, and cancer survivor, calls prehabilitation the mental and physical preparation a person can take to achieve good health, from stress reduction to healthier eating 

Loriana Hernandez-Aldama joins the Salud Talks Podcast, Episode 39, to talk about the great need for prehabilitation to help Latinos stay healthy and ready to deal with disease.
