#SaludTues Tweetchat 12/11: Place-Based Health Disparities


Share On Social!

Where you live is a bigger predictor of your health and life expectancy than your genes.

The places we live are made up of homes, schools, childcare, parks, grocery stores, workplaces, community services, and the streets connecting us to these destinations.

However, the places we live were not created equal, contributing to health disparities among Latinos.

UPDATE: Check out the recap on Wakelet

Join #SaludTues on Dec. 11, 2018, at 1:00 PM EST to tweet about laws and policies that have created unhealthy places and strategies to reduce place-based health disparities. 

Inspiration for this Tweetchat is based on this blog post from our friends at ChangeLab Solutions.

Check it out and join us.

We’ll open the floor to historical facts, as well as your stories and experiences as we explore:

  • What “place” has to do with health;
  • How past policies contributed to health disparities; and
  • Strategies to reduce place-based health disparities.
