We cover the areas of Healthy Families and Schools, Healthy Neighborhoods and Communities, and Healthy and Cohesive Cultures.

Salud America! is led by health disparities researcher Dr. Amelie G. Ramirez and supported by a passionate team of communicators at Ramirez’s Institute for Health Promotion Research in the Department of Population Health Sciences in the School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio.

The program is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
