Championing for Latina Heart Health

#HispanicHeritageMonth may be over but the work that our Latina Champions do continues! Meet Melissa Castro, one of our newest WomenHeart Champions. Following her experience at the Science and Leadership Symposium, she’s ready to educate and advocate in her community!

Melissa, a resident of south Texas, has experienced first hand the prevalence and risk factors of diabetes and heart disease within the high population of Latinas in her area. As a Champion, Melissa can reach her community to deliver important health information that may not be accessible due to language or geographic barriers. We’re honored to work with Melissa and all of the Champions in the fight to end heart disease.
