Salud America!’s latest project—the Salud Talks podcast—will be back in 2020 with more episodes all about holistic health equity.
The first episode of the new year and decade will go live on Jan. 8 and will kick-off a slate of discussions. These productions will feature grassroots advocates, government officials, healthcare professionals, and others who discuss the issues impacting Latinos and all Americans today — from the aspirational communications to sugary drinks to childhood wellness.
“We’re excited to see this project continue its work in informing listeners on the harmful disparities impacting Latinos and all Americans today,” said Dr. Amelie Ramirez, director of Salud America! “Salud Talks is impactful. We are eager to continue engaging with listeners going into this new year and decade.”
In upcoming episodes, Salud Talks will cover a wide range of topics that feature grassroots advocates, healthcare professionals, government officials, and many others — from the forthcoming census to food desserts to trauma-informed care in schools.
On December 26, the show released its 2020 preview, “What’s Next.”
“These conversations go just beyond exploring an issue,” Josh McCormack, the show’s producer, said in that preview. “Instead, we will provide background, insight, and context into where we are as a society, how we got here, and what we can all do to make a difference in creating a culture of holistic health equity.”
This podcast is a weekly production of Salud America!, the Institute for Health Promotion Research at The UT Health San Antonio’s media organization. This project aims to inform listeners of health inequities and trends impacting the Latino community. Episodes—released every Wednesday—feature notable guests working day-to-day in the issues that are affecting Latinos in America today.
How You Can Participate
The best way to contribute is subscribing, listening, and joining in on the conversation, according to McCormack.
“We want people to engage with this work,” McCormack said. “Our content only makes a difference if our listeners feel it speaks to them, their story, and the issues they face daily.
“Really, we want to help spur on systemic change, which, to us, means everyone taking action in these issues.”
