What is ABClatino SALUD…
Beginning in 2018, ABClatino developed a special program, ABClatino SALUD (Hablemos de Salud/ Let´s Talk Health) a bilingual multimedia program that focuses on health-related topics. In 2018, 2019 and 2020, we developed a robust virtual library where the community can find bilingual information in the format that they prefer: audio, video, interactive articles, on the web, radio, TV and print. http://servicios.abclatino.com/health
Every year, we focused the attention in providing the most updated information, working hand in hand with regional providers, organizations, specialists, and the community itself. We visited the rural areas in the Eastern Dutchess County region to listen to people’s needs and concerns, we built a strong relationship with the local organizations, and we delivered valuable information, participated in many community events and encouraged women and children to participate in our activities.
The grant received from the Foundation for Community Health and their ongoing assistance was pivotal in the creation and dissemination of this much needed health resource.
