Residents of Puerto Rico and Latin America can now chat live with a health professional for free and receive answers to basic health and wellbeing questions through “Vida y Salud” website

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HITN TV announced that its digital platform Vida y Salud has integrated a free live chat service where users can receive answers to basic health and psychological questions. The service is available in Puerto Rico and Latin America through its digital platform, www.VidaySalud.com. Users can now communicate with a health professional by digital chat, for free, to ask questions about their concerns.


HITN is continuously devoted to its core mission of improving the quality of life of Hispanic families across the United States, Puerto Rico, and now Latin America through key technology initiatives,” said Michael D. Nieves, President and CEO of HITN. “At this time, the new service will be particularly useful in Puerto Rico where the population has been affected by a recent series of earthquakes and tremors. HITN realizes that recovery from an event of this magnitude takes time, so the initiative of providing free support to those affected will be extended until March of this year.”
