ÁmateAhora was selected by the 7th District Health Taskforce Commissoner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia along with the SouthWest Organizing Project (SWOP). To pilot a health series in the SouthWest of Chicago. The series includes my testimony on the power we have NOW to choose optimal health, an invitation to our Annual ÁmateAhora Health Expo, monthly sweat sessions and screening, and races for a cause. Experts will be leading Exhilarating Exercises and Blissful Breathing techniques. If pilot is successful we will be invited to participate in multiple schools and park districts.

ÁmateAhora is making difference! Did you know? About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. While almost everyone is affected by heart disease directly or indirectly, Hispanics and Latinos face even higher risks of cardiovascular diseases because of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. Additionally, heart disease is the #1 killer of Hispanic women

. Unlike many illnesses, heart disease is preventable!
