Tweetchat: How Out-of-School Programs Could Affect #Latinohealth

September 9, 2016

tweetchat 9 13Please join the National AfterSchool Association and SaludToday for a #SaludTues Tweetchat at 1 p.m. ET, Tuesday, September 13, on "How Out-of-Schools Programs Can Impact #LatinoHealth."

Physical activity and play are critical to a child's physical, social, and mental development.

Afterschool and out-of- school time programs are uniquely positioned to support physical activity, play, and healthy eating for children, especially Latinos who are less physically active than their peers.

Let's use #SaludTues on Sept. 13, 2016, to tweet about how out-of- schools providers can promote a healthy weight and spur lifelong habits among Latino children.

  • WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: "How Out-of- Schools Programs Can Impact #LatinoHealth"
  • TIME/DATE: 1-2 p.m. EST Tuesday, September 13, 2016
  • WHERE: On Twitter with hashtag #SaludTues
  • HOST: @SaludToday
  • CO-HOSTS: National AfterSchool Association (@NatlAfterSchool), Texas State Alliance of YMCAs (@TexasYmcas), and Baylor University Texas Hunger Initiative (@Texas_Hunger)

Optional Hashtags: #HEPA #DASH #SafeRoutes4All #hepastandards and #HealthyOST.

We'll open the floor to your experiences and stories as we discuss:

  • Why it's important to look beyond the traditional school day when considering kids nutrition and physical activity.
  • How HEPA standards can impact Latino kid’s physical activity.
  • What role Latino families can play in encouraging/supporting out-of-school providers in adopting HEPA standards.

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your strategies, stories, and resources for supporting healthy kids.
