Why Join Salud America! as Program Coordinator
Latinos are a rising U.S. powerhouse. But they face barriers to be their healthiest and suffer high rates of obesity and other health inequities.
Salud America! creates culturally relevant and research-based stories, videos, a podcast, and action tools to inspire people to start and support healthy changes to policies, systems, and environments where Latino and all children and families can equitably live, learn, work, and play.
The program’s award-winning multimedia communications help our social and digital network—more than 400,000 moms and dads, providers, and community and school leaders—push for healthy changes.
We cover the areas of Healthy Families and Schools, Healthy Neighborhoods and Communities, and Healthy and Cohesive Cultures.
Salud America! is led by health disparities researcher Dr. Amelie G. Ramirez and supported by a passionate team of communicators at Ramirez’s Institute for Health Promotion Research in the Department of Population Health Sciences in the School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio.
The program is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
