Dismantle income, language, and education barriers to health and well-being for Hispanic women and their families in the U.S. by delivering culturally tailored and accessible chronic disease and cancer prevention programs.
ROSAesROJO makes wellness and prevention accessible to Hispanic women and their families in the United States. It educates them on the topics of nutrition, mental health, and physical activity, using cultural humility and community care as part of its social innovation. ROSAesROJO leads Hispanics to live healthier lives and reduce the incidence of chronic diseases, primarily cancer. When Hispanics do access health care, it often doesn’t consider their cultural context or home language, entrenching existing health disparities. That is why ROSAesROJO promotes preventive health care, educating women to adopt healthier behaviors.
