From Heart to Heart: A Bilingual Group Discussion Kit/Del corazón al corazón: componentes bilingües de discusión en grupo (bilingual English, Spanish)

Written in English and Spanish, this guide explains how to organize and conduct two 1-hour educational sessions (Charlas) on heart health targeting the Latino community. The guide comes with an educational video in Spanish. Each group discussion includes a video presentation, followed by a guided discussion and question-and-answer period. The guide contains ideas for choosing a facilitator and advertising the charla; a list of materials needed for the sessions; background information for the facilitator; a master copy of handouts to reproduce before the sessions; and ideas for optional activities such as blood cholesterol and blood pressure screenings, nutrition counseling, and heart-healthy food demonstrations. Can be used for small or large groups. The video includes two sections, one "For the Love of Your Heart" focuses on the prevention of the risk factors for heart disease, and the other "Cooking With Your Heart in Mind" takes viewers on a heart-healthy food shopping tour with Felícita Bernier, R.D., and shows them ways to prepare delicious heart-healthy Latino dishes. The acclaimed journalist María Elena Salinas shares her personal experience.

This kit contains the following item(s):
  • From Heart to Heart/Video para una charla de salud del corazón (en español)
  • From Heart to Heart: A Bilingual Group Discussion Guide/Del corazón al corazón: una guía bilingüe de discusión en grupo (bilingual English, Spanish)
