The president and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation’s largest organization of health and human service providers to Hispanics, wrote these books as part of the Buena Salud series, which aims to educate Latinos about a variety of health issues common to the community. Each book presents real-life case stories, tools to support healthy life changes, questions to take to health providers and help understanding test results and treatment options. The books are written in a style that is easy to follow in both languages and couched in the Latino community’s cultural context. The websites listed as resources have been reviewed by medical experts for accuracy and currency. Terms and concepts are clearly defined and explained for the lay reader.  


Written by a Latina doctor seeking to provide straightforward advice to the Hispanic community, both titles are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
