Cancer has long overtaken heart disease as the top killer of Latinos.

Latinos have higher rates than their peers for many cancers. Latinos also experience cancer differently—from genetics to the environment to healthcare access.

To raise awareness on World Cancer Day (Feb. 4), let’s use #SaludTues on Feb. 4, 2020, to tweet about the latest progress in cancer research, the importance of cancer screening, and tips for prevention and survivorship!

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

  • What are the various issues and types of cancer facing Latinos and all people?
  • How do culture, screening habits, and lifestyle impact cancer progression?
  • What programs, campaigns, and policies are available to help prevent cancer among Latinos?

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your strategies, stories, and resources to raise awareness about cancer prevention.

#SaludTues is a Latino health equity tweetchat at 12p CST/1p ET every Tuesday hosted by the @SaludAmerica program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.
