CHARLAR is a community program to help Latinos learn, build skills, and improve health behaviors to lower their risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The program offers a shared learning environment where community members support one another in setting goals around better nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle changes.
The program includes 11 weeks of bi-lingual evidence-based skill building and education classes, cardiovascular disease and risk factor screenings, group-based physical activity and navigation to medical homes and other community-based services. The program is held periodically in Routt and Moffat counties. For more information, contact Erick Ocampo in Steamboat Springs, 970-819-5963 or Martha Duarte in Craig, 970-870-4117.
