Health Literacy

Thanks to the Healthy Community Found by Joseph’s-Froedtert Hospital , Casa Guadalupe started the Latino Health Outreach Project (LHOP) in 2013. The main goal of this project is to help increase the knowledge of health literacy among the Spanish speaking residents of Washington County, and help improve their overall quality of life and wellbeing.

Since 2013 and thanks to the founding received to this program , we have been able  to expand and start new programs like the ” Healthy Latinos, Healthy Futures” project, were the principal goal is to informed Spanish Speaking families in Washington County how to take healthier decisions and improve their lifestyles by targeting nutrition, physical activity and prevention and management of chronic health conditions. 

Our goal is that Latinos will learn effective diet management and chronic illness prevention which helps to achieve Wisconsin’s high rankings of healthiness, and helps to reduce Emergency Department visits and hospitalization.

 Casa Guadalupe is working with many local health care agencies and community partners to make these projects a success, including Froedtert-St. Joseph’s Hospital, Albrecht Free Clinic, American Heart Association, Aurora Healthcare, Midland Health, Washington County Health Department, Well Washington County Coalition, UW-Extension, Kettle Moraine YMCA, Healthline First Aid, Susan G. Komen, Hartford Recreation Department, GrapeVine-Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation, the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging and local Zumba instructors.

Gracias al fondo “Comunidad Saludable” del hospital Joseph’s-Froedtert, Casa Guadalupe en el 2013 inicio el programa Latino de salud (LHOP por sus siglas en ingles). El principal objetivo de este projecto es incrementar el conocimiento y alfabetización en salud entre los hispanos hablantes residentes del condado de Washington, para de esta manera promover una mejor calidad de vida.

Desde el año 2013 y gracias a todos los fondos recibos, hemos podido expandir este projecto de salud ahora llamado “Latinos Saludables, Futuros Saludables” donde el principal objetivo es informar a los hispano hablantes residentes del condado de Washington como tomar decisiones saludables y mejorar sus estilos de vida mediante clases de nutrición, actividad fisica y manejo de enfermedades cronicas. 

 Casa Guadalupe trabaja de la mano con diversas organizaciones locales de salud para hacer de todos estos programas un éxito, actualmente trabajamos con las siguientes organizaciones: Froedtert-St. Joseph’s Hospital, Albrecht Free Clinic, American Heart Association, Aurora Healthcare, Midland Health, Washington County Health Department, Well Washington County Coalition, UW-Extension, Kettle Moraine YMCA, Healthline First Aid, Susan G. Komen, Hartford Recreation Department, GrapeVine-Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation, the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging and local Zumba instructors.
