National Hispanic Heritage Month 2017
This month we encourage you to celebrate your heritage and share Chisme Saludable. From September 15 through October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) is observed across America, in celebration of the independence of several Latin American countries and the contributions that have infused America.
We are very proud of our rich Latino culture and heritage! While the Hispanic identity is diverse, the shared experiences of hard work, love of family, food and perseverance bond us together. Yet, cultural factors, environmental influences, education and economic status significantly impact our personal health and the health of our communities.
EmPOWERED To Serve / Vida Saludable has resources and tools to use so you can take action to improve cardiovascular health for yourself, your familia, your amigos and your community. Browse through the resources above to find videos, shareable social media content, an interactive quiz, printable resources and more. As you make changes in your life, pass along your chisme saludable. Your story of individual change can encourage others in the community to take action. All of us together can be a force for healthy change.
