Sana, Sana, Colita de Rana
October 20, 2018
Sixth Annual Latino Health Forum
¡Convivamos juntos, para una vida sana!
The San Mateo County Latino Collaborative presents the sixth annual Sana, Sana, Colita de Rana, an event where community members can learn about healthy habits, healthy communities, nutrition and access to mental health services. This year’s theme is “Tradiciones que Sanan el Alma” which means “Celebrating the Culture of Healing the Soul”.
Why Stop By?
Many Latinos experience stress resulting from poor housing, abuse, trauma, stigma, discrimination, assimilation, and acculturation issues. These life stressors can have a negative impact on health. Nearly one-third of Latinos in California are classified as obese and less than one in 11 Latinos who suffer from mental health problems get professional help.
Stop by to join the movement for healthy change in the Latino community.
Care for Yourself Today, for a Better Tomorrow
Stop by for information on immigration, recognizing signs of emotional stress, access to community resources and stories of hope. This year’s keynote speaker is Joaquin Jimenez.
Resource tables will feature information about services, health insurance coverage and more. Presentations on immigration, mental health and suicide prevention will be in Spanish, with English translation.
