Familias en Accion

About the Partnership:

Familias en Accion at the 2014 latino Health Equity Conference

MIKE Program and Familias en Acción are well-aligned to forward a movement for healthier communities. MIKE’s Program Evaluation Findings were featured during Familias en Acción’s Latino Health Equity Conference in 2014 as a model for guiding Latino youth toward healthier lifestyles. Familias en Acción provided a Spanish-language translation to MIKE’s My Healthy Pocket Shopper in October, 2014, to guide Latinos through healthier food choices. MIKE President Cheryl Neal, MD, first connected with Familias en Acción with a presentation in 2012.
