New Research Finds Recession Has Greater Impact on Health of Parents than Children with Specific Findings on Hispanics
Date:5/18/2009

Most Hispanics agree that the health of the entire family is important, yet parents prioritize children's health over their own

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The economic downturn is contributing to a decline in overall family health in the Hispanic community, with parents prioritizing their children's health over their own. While 44 percent of Hispanics consider it equally important for parents to take care of their own health and the health of their children, significantly more parents say the economic downturn has affected their own health and wellness compared to that of their children (69 percent vs. 59 percent).

In addition, Hispanic parents are worried about their family's overall healthcare situation. Forty-five percent of Hispanics are concerned about their ability to afford healthcare, medicines and treatment for themselves or their families. And their perspective on the future is even gloomier, with 81 percent of Hispanic parents indicating they expect the current economic downturn to affect their own health or that of a family member.

"As a family company, Boehringer Ingelheim is committed to improving the health of patients and their families, and these survey findings underscore the importance of expanding healthcare options for every generation," said J.
