Rosa Es Rojo
Share about your mission and how your organization is making a difference in Dallas.
Our mission is to make wellness and cancer prevention accessible for the Hispanic women North Texas by training them on the topics of nutrition, physical activity, emotional health and positive thinking. This has been possible thanks to our community wellness program, "The Rojo Way", shared in Spanish, using culturally relevant content.
Big cancer awareness organizations are anchors for wellness, but because of cultural barriers, Rosa Es Rojo is filling the gap for what is missing, offering an effective solution for Hispanics, breaking the pathology of unhealthy lifestyles, which can reduce cancer.
No other wellness program is reaching the Latino community, in Spanish, using culturally relevant content.
As of today, 640+ Hispanic women has been directly impacted, touching the lives of at least 3,200+ community members. This is equivalent to 6,000+ wellness education hours delivered in the community in North Texas.
Thanks to Rosa Es Rojo, Latinas in North Texas are choosing healthier food options and are improving mental and emotional wellbeing even in the face of adversity. Our ripple effect is encouraging the Latino community and also you to SUPERVIVE, which to us means being Healthy, Happy and Resilient.
