Women’s Health Resources

The Latina Guide to Health: Consejos and Caring Answers (La guia de salud: consejos y respuestas para la mujer Latina) features cutting-edge information as well as “consejos” (conversational advice) throughout. It includes steps for leading a healthier life, themes for raising healthy children, and tools for tracking and monitoring health. The guide is written by one of the leading authorities on Latino health and is available in English and Spanish versions (Newmarket Press, New York, January 2010). The guide includes a section of “Health facts” on topics of special concern to Latinas from alcoholism and asthma to depression, diabetes, lupus, and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as website resources. Complimentary copies of the guide are being distributed by 100 Hispanic community-based agencies for use in their health promotion programs.
