With the future of health in the United States at risk, too many health efforts are solely focused on downstream and midstream efforts, treatment and individual behaviors, respectively. To remedy this, an urgent focus on upstream prevention is needed. Enter the Salud America! program at UT Health San Antonio. Salud America!, led by Amelie G. Ramirez, is leading the nation in creating culturally relevant multimedia research, tools, and stories to fuel its 200,000-person network, which aims to support policy, system, and environmental changes in schools and communities that improve health equity and public health, reduce disparities, and promote lifelong well-being. In the past 12 months alone, Salud America! core network members successfully contributed to more than 250 Latino health policy changes passed or enacted by a relevant voting body.

Cohosted with Boston University Digital Learning & Innovation.


Amelie G. Ramirez, Professor and Interim Chair, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Director, Institute for Health Promotion Research, UT Health San Antonio
