About Latinos Living Healthy:
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.
