This podcast is a weekly production of Salud America!, the Institute for Health Promotion Research at The UT Health San Antonio’s media organization. This project aims to inform listeners of health inequities and trends impacting the Latino community.
The New Normal
Salud Talks' co-hosts and producers, Tenoch Aztecatl and Josh McCormack discuss this new normal, the struggles we are facing, how we have adapted, and what the experts are saying about the current state of the world.
Addressing White Privilege
The Black Lives Matter movement has sparked a conversation about race and prejudice in America. One of the key factors in that discussion is the privileges afforded to whites, and how those benefits harm communities of color. Dr. Rogelio Sáenz, the Dean of the College of Public Policy and the Mark G. Yudof Endowed Chair at the University of Texas at San Antonio, joins Salud Talks to discuss this issue and what the members of that community can do to make a difference.
Black Lives Matter
In light of the recent tragedies, co-hosts Tenoch Aztecatl and Josh McCormack discuss systemic injustice as well as the violence committed against communities of color.
Creating Through Crisis
With the current spread of the current novel coronavirus, many with creative passions—ranging from painting to woodworking to storytelling—are facing new difficulties, especially in their ability to produce work. Tenoch Aztecatl, the producer of this podcast and video producer at Salud America, joins Salud Talks to discuss inspiration, innovation, and imagination — as well as how the global crisis has impacted those pursuits.
As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps throughout the U.S., medical experts say that mixed messaging coming from civic leaders in Washington has led to worse outcomes for everyday individuals and a successful stop to the spread. Today, Dr. Jason Rosenfeld, the Assistant Director of Global Health at UT Health San Antonio joins Salud Talks to discuss his career in health communications, and how that experience is informing his work to disseminate knowledge about the outbreak.
Last week, we discussed how high levels of stress could influence the development of cancer. This week, we explore another risk factor in cancer development — genetics. A person’s family or place of origin, even dating back years and years, can influence that individual’s risk for certain types of cancers.
