Health Promotion Strategies
Research showed that Hispanic children who had only been in contact with other children who had attended a health education class lost weight and exercised more effectively. E ducational material in written in Spanish about the causes of cardiovascular disease would be an effective way to raise awareness. The information shared would include factors such as exercise, the appropriate diets, and how they would overcome certain barriers to getting effective health care. Many people from the community do not visit the hospital and as such go to the hospital when it is too late for certain conditions.
