Share On Social!
By Rosalie Aguilar, Salud America! Project Coordinator
At least 76% of U.S. Latinos connect to the Internet by mobile phone—many of which are connected to social media networks according to the Pew Research Center. Social media and online communities can be a great way to share information and tools to drive social change. Salud America! uses its website and online community to keep educators, parents, leaders, and members of the health care industry informed about the latest stories, policies and systems change to reverse Latino childhood obesity. This week we’ll be chatting about online communities and resources that can activate change.
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: “Online Communities & Tools For Healthy Change”
- DATE: Tuesday, July 19th, 2016
- TIME: 1-2 p.m. ET (Noon-1 p.m. CT)
- WHERE: On Twitter with hashtag #SaludTues
- HOST: @SaludToday

We’ll open the floor to your stories and experiences as we:
