One in four Hispanics in Utah die of heart disease each year, and the majority of risk factors for heart disease are higher in Hispanics in Utah as compared to the Utah state average.
You can do something about it, for you and/or your family!
The American Heart Association is reaching the underserved, difficult to reach, and largely uninsured Spanish-speaking population with Conozca Su Corazón (CSC). Loosely translated as “Know Your Heart,” CSC is a free heart disease and stroke intervention that helps Hispanics/Latinos to make heart-healthy behavior changes. This comprehensive and innovative program was developed using health behavior theory and is focused on healthy weight through behavior modifications in physical activity levels and healthy nutrition.
CSC is a comprehensive approach, not just an education course, and will help Hispanic/Latinos reduce the risk for heart disease. Program components include a four small-group workshops (sessions) in community locations; online support through Heart360 and social media; worksite wellness integration (Fit-Friendly Worksites); and other activities that promote healthy behaviors (e.g. healthy grocery shopping tours, walking groups, family soccer, cooking demonstration).
