Diabetes can lead to countless life-changing complications.

Unfortunately, Latinos are disproportionately affected by diabetes-related morbidity and mortality.

Additionally, the prevalence of diabetes among Latinos is rising at a substantially higher rate than non-Hispanic Whites.

On Tuesday, July 30, 2019, let’s use #SaludTues on Twitter to chat about the importance of diabetes awareness and preventive solutions that will improve the health of Latinos and all! 

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

  • Diabetes and the Latino Community.
  • How to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
  • How can promotoras help those individuals who are at risk for type 2 diabetes.
  • Resources to address prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your strategies, stories, and resources that can help Latinos prevent diabetes.
