Community Heart Health Actions for Latinos at Risk (CHARLAR) is a community health worker-led community program in partnership with CREA Results that aims to build healthier lifestyles in adult Latinos (aged 40 years and older), in Metro Denver by lowering risks for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. We leverage the cultural assets of Denver area Latinos by creating a shared learning environment where community members rally together to prevent, delay, or manage heart disease and diabetes. The program includes 11 weeks of evidence-based skill building and education classes, cardiovascular disease and risk factor screenings, physician counseling, group-based physical activity and navigation to medical homes and other community-based services.
