The LULAC Latinos Living Healthy (LLH) initiative is a comprehensive approach designed to reach Latinos across the United States and Puerto Rico to address health disparities in our communities. The three main goals of the initiative are to educate and increase awareness of health issues within the Latino community, distribute information and resources to individuals who otherwise may not have access to them and to engage community partners to create local ambassadors to best impact the needs of every region.

Health Equity

Health equity is achieved when people have the opportunity to achieve full health potential and are not at a disadvantage based on their social position. However, there are many barriers to health including language barriers, immigration status, and access to culturally relevant resources. LULAC aims to provide bilingual information and discuss the importance of access to quality healthcare and participating in health research. The fact of the matter is that the Latino community has been historically left out of research. And when you’re left out of the research, you can be left out of the solutions. 

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program from the National Institutes of Health. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. 

The Latino community hasn’t been well represented in health research. The All of Us Research Program wants to change that.
