About HealthyHIspanicLiving.com

We’re not just talking about the issues. We’re solving them.

With the goal of developing a culturally-relevant content and communications platform to advance clinical care, research, prevention, education, mental health, financial well-being, nutrition, fitness and outreach to the Latino community, HealthyHispanicLiving (HHL) was launched. As the first-ever preventive care online educational platform targeted to U.S. Hispanics, our aim is to guide Hispanics to live healthier lives and to ensure preventive care engagement and accountability by changing the conversation about health from illness to wellness and providing solutions.

Representing 17% of the U.S. population (55 million people), these are the current Hispanic tension points that need to be addressed:

  •     Lack of targeted healthcare information for Hispanics
  •     Not enough outreach from the medical to the Hispanic community
  •     Hispanics have a higher risk of preventable disease, injury, and death
  •     Low vaccination rates contributing to preventable diseases in Hispanics
  •     Hispanics need to receive health information in a more timely manner
  •     The obesity epidemic hit the Hispanic population fast and hard
