New data book outlines Hispanic/Latino health
Date:2/26/2014

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, released the largest and most comprehensive health and lifestyle analysis of people from a range of Hispanic/Latino origins. The data will enable individuals, communities, and policy makers to tailor better health intervention strategies.

"This study lays the foundation for future research on the possible causes of chronic diseases and ways to prevent them, and to help us understand the reasons why Hispanics and Latinos live longer than the general population," said Gregory Talavera, M.D., a distinguished professor in San Diego State University's Graduate School of Public Health and the principal investigator for the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) Field Center in San Diego.

"The Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) Data Book: A Report to the Communities" includes data on more than 16,000 Hispanic/Latino adults living in San Diego, Chicago, Miami and the Bronx who self-identified as being of Central American, Cuban, Dominican, Mexican, Puerto Rican or South American heritage.

"Although Hispanics represent one out of every six people in the U.S., our knowledge about Hispanic health has been limited," said Larissa Avils-Santa, project officer for HCHS/SOL.

Using the data from HCHS/SOL, a report from the National Alliance for Hispanic Health was generated to highlight health areas that are having a positive impact in the Hispanic and Latino population.

In an effort to highlight health areas that are having a positive impact in Hispanic and Latino families and communities, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health today released a 40-page bilingual report, titled "About Our Health: Results from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (SOL)," that underlines health trends for each of the communities involved in the study.
