#SaludTues Tweetchat 5/14/24─Why Is Brain Health So Important?


Share On Social!

Brain health is important – but we often overlook it.

The World Health Organization defines brain health as the “state of brain functioning across cognitive, sensory, social-emotional, behavioural and motor domains, allowing a person to realize their full potential over the life course.”

While we can take action to maintain our brain health and mental health, conditions such as brain tumors and dementia can affect the brain and disrupt our lives.

As part of Brain Cancer Awareness Month in May, let’s use #SaludTues on May 14, 2024, to explore how to maintain brain health and find out what we should know about brain tumors, dementia, and mental health, especially among the Latino population.

We’ll open the floor to your comments, tips, and stories as we explore:

  • Why is brain health so important?
  • How can we maintain brain health?
  • What should you know about brain tumors?

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your tips, stories, and resources to explore brain health for Latinos and all people!

#SaludTues is a periodic health equity tweetchat on Twitter/X (always on a Tuesday at 12p CT/1p ET), focusing on the Latino population. #SaludTues is hosted by the @SaludAmerica program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.

One Response to “How to Improve Healthcare Worker Burnout”

    I know this is a two year old article, but Bias is another reason why some Hispanic people think about or attempt suicide. I’m actually part Filipino, German and English and I ended up looking stereotypically Hispanic and my surname is Spanish due to my Filipino side since the Spanish colonized the Philippines. I’m a woman though and I’ve thought about it for a number of reasons involving my health from a rare disorder that caused learning issues and also I have obvious cancer symptoms Ive tried getting help with. I’ve also been treated poorly and sometimes in very scary situations because of obvious Bias and Prejudice due to my appearance. I’m just saying Bias against people who are Hispanic and “look Hispanic” is a real thing. I apologize if it was in this article but I didn’t notice it, But I do apologize if its in there. I just think it needs to be addressed more. Thank You
