Latinos Living Healthy engages the League of United Latin American Citizens' network of 135,000 community volunteers, organized into 1000 councils and 60 community technology centers, in a health and wellness public education campaign. This initiative includes issue-based advocacy trainings, health education programs and community health festivals. LULAC’s health priorities focus on reducing health disparities, increasing access to quality & affordable health care, and have an emphasis on reducing obesity.
As part of our Latinos Living Healthy initiative, LULAC is planning its fourth in a series of Latinos Living Healthy Ferias de Salud. LULAC’s Feria de Salud brings Latino community members, health professionals, major corporations, leading sports icons and key community leaders together to underscore the importance of incorporating health nutrition and fitness into the everyday lives of Latino families and children. Additionally, the health festival provides a great forum to disseminate key health resources and information to encourage Latino families to become active participants in creating sustainable healthy communities.
The League of United Latin American Citizens and Latinos Living Healthy is proud to host the National Cinco de Mayo Festival: Latinos Living Healthy Feria de Salud on Sunday, May 4, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the National Mall between 8th and 12th Streets at the Smithsonian Metro Stop in Washington, DC. This event will gather families from across the Washington DC metro area for a phenomenal day-long cultural festival focused on healthy eating, physical activity, and wellness while celebrating Latino cultural traditions. LULAC will provide a variety of health screenings, fun physical activity and healthy Mexican-American cuisine to celebrate Latino music, family, health and culture! The event is free and open to the public.
