Free pocket-sized health book arms Latinos with tools to lead a healthy

life

SAN DIEGO, July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eli Lilly and Company has partnered with the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) to unveil a small tool aimed at battling a big problem -- chronic disease. Lilly is rolling out the free 148-page pocket-sized health book, Buena Salud, Buena Vida -- Su Guia de Recursos de Salud, with the support of NCLR during the organization's 2008 Annual Conference today through Tuesday at the San Diego Convention Center.

We have an interest in making sure our community has access to the best information on how to prevent disease, as well as the highest quality treatment available. This timely and readable booklet advances both of these goals," said Murguia.

Buena Salud, Buena Vida - Su Guia de Recursos de Salud puts useful tips and resources in the hands of Hispanic Americans to help them lead a healthy life and prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
