Create a Report in Your Area
The Salud Report Card highlights key health issues in your county with data, policy solutions, research, and stories so you can start and support healthy changes for Latino kids.

Simply select your state and county and the Report Card will specifically exam the following in your county:

The Report Card can help you quickly get data and research in to the hands of those who need it most, and can be used to justify and advocate for grant funding and policy change.
