Salud America! accomplishments to date:
Salud America! also created communication channels, to inform network members of news and funding opportunities, and to offer information to the general public through social media at a later time.
“During the past 5 years, Salud America! has substantially increased awareness of Latino childhood obesity issues, the number of investigators examining those issues, and the evidence base;” these authors conclude. “The network’s pilot studies documented important societal, cultural, community, and family factors contributing to Latino childhood obesity and identified policy implications and recommendations for combating the epidemic.”
