Bilingual health magazine launched
Hispanic News Press has launched a bilingual health magazine for the Boston area called Health and Family/Salud y Familia.
About 20,000 copies of the quarterly have been distributed to hospital waiting rooms, doctors’ offices and community organizations in areas where there are large numbers of Spanish speakers, marketing director Raul Medina said in an interview. Stories are written in Spanish and summaries appear in English.
Hispanic News Press publishes El Planeta in Boston, Lawrence, Worcester, Springfield and Providence. Some copies of the health magazine have been distributed in those cities, too.
The 16-page health magazine’s first cover story features Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell talking about his battle with testicular cancer. Lowell was born in Puerto Rico, and his father is from Cuba.
