Recientemente estuve en los estudios de “Órale con Verónica”, para compartir con la carismática presentadora de este programa semanal, Verónica Robles, lo que el Departamento de Salud Pública de Massachusetts está haciendo para mejorar la salud de las comunidades minoritarias y, en específico, de la comunidad hispana.

En esta entrevista, que se emitirá el próximo sábado hablamos sobre los problemas de salud que afectan a un gran porcentaje de los residentes hispanos de la región. Además, les decimos, entre otras muchas cosas, donde encontrar servicios directos para tratar esas enfermedades y ofrecemos interesantes alternativas para que pueda llevar una dieta sana sin tener que renunciar a sus platos latinoamericanos preferidos.

No se olvide de sintonizar “Órale con Verónica” el próximo sábado 14 de Mayo a las 10 de la mañana por Telemundo. ¡También puede visitar las páginas de Internet www.oraleconveronica.com y www.holaciudad.com  donde podrá ver esta entrevista después de su emisión por televisión!
