Hispanics and Healthy Lifestyles - US - December 2017
"In spite of higher overweight and obesity rates, Hispanics have a generally positive outlook on their personal health. Hispanics take pride in their health but are not necessarily willing to make changes to ensure a healthier life. A combination of complacency and confidence could prevent Hispanics from implementing new initiatives to makes their lives healthier. There is significant interest in improving health overall, but converting interest into action will be a significant hurdle to overcome."
