AHRQ Creates Facebook Page To Help Hispanics Take The Reins Of Their Health Care
A new Spanish-language Facebook page is a cornerstone of AHRQ’s efforts to highlight the Effective Health Care Program’s growing array of Spanish-language publications.
The Facebook page, which features health information videos and links to publications that explore treatment options for conditions ranging from cancer to diabetes to depression, was launched as part of the AHRQ’s Toma las riendas (“Take the reins”) campaign. The campaign encouraged Hispanics to take control of their health care by exploring their treatment options. AHRQ will continue to build on Toma las riendas’ success by developing more partnerships with Hispanic-serving organizations. Current partners include the National Latina Health Network, the Latino Medical Student Association, the National Association for Hispanic Elderly, the National Center for Farmworker Health, the National Hispanic Council on Aging, and the National Hispanic Medical Association.
The Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/AHRQehc.espanol will remain a place for Spanish-speaking visitors to learn about AHRQ’s efforts to help them “take the reins” of their health. [AHRQ Effective Health Care Inside Track]
