Tweetchat: How Out-of-School Programs Could Affect #Latinohealth
September 9, 2016
Please 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
