Hispanic Heart Health in the U.S.

The EmPOWERED To Serve team understands the power that numbers hold. But, we also know that keeping numbers straight when trying to explain something important to others is not always easy. So, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to have access to a few key facts and figures around Hispanic/Latino health.

Here are two infographics that you can use as resources as you discuss the health challenges Hispanics/Latinos face.
