#SaludTues Tweetchat 1/16/18: Making Latinos Healthier in 2018


Share On Social!

It’s a brand-new year, as 2018 is here! If you are like millions of others across the country, you probably took some time to come up with a New Year’s resolution or two.

Each New Year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions. These vary from eating healthier, getting more exercise, and being more aware of their mental health.

While the intentions are good, these resolutions are not always easy to stick to. So, what if, for 2018, we did something different?

What if we resolved to make this year healthier for Latinos?

Despite being the largest and youngest racial and ethnic minority group in the country (and their numbers are getting larger and younger with each passing year), Latinos still suffer from numerous disparities that prevent them from obtaining the best health possible.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018, let’s share resources and talk about out there doing what they can to make Latinos healthier! Use #SaludTues to tweet questions and get answers about Connecting Latinos to Resources!
