Improving Latino health is focus of new Web site

April 2010

The Institute for Health Promotion Research (IHPR) unveiled six new public service announcements and a new Latino health blog and Web site, SaludToday, all geared to promoting healthier lifestyles among Latinos. The site, www.SaludToday.com, features a blog about Latino cancer, obesity and other health topics, as well as videos, resources and the capability for individuals to share their own success stories, from beating cancer to losing weight to quitting smoking. The IHPR outreach effort aims to catalyze Latino families, community leaders and health researchers to reduce and prevent health disparities, particularly differences in Latinos' disproportionate burden of disease compared to non-Hispanic whites.
