El Nuevo Sol Salud

This semester I am taking the course, “Global Health Reporting for the Latino Communities”….Kind of like my “soul-mate” type course.

I am, 1. obsessed with health/nutrition, 2. Love reporting 3. topic of choice? Latino communities. 

A few weeks into the semester, and completely new to the area, I have been able to branch out to local clinics, and learn about health and the LA county.

What I have learned so far? What students at California State University, Northridge, think of Health and fitness.

I also came across WIC! After some research and having visited a WIC health center, I learned that WIC offers a Supplemental Nutrition Program. Anyone who qualifies for WIC has access to nutrition classes, one on one education on breastfeeding, smart shopping, and many more.

My point exactly?

More courses like this should be taught, at the High School, College, University level :)

I ask that you pleaseee support the idea of this course, health insurance, and WIC by going to:
