The 10th annual edition of the Sana Sana, Colita de Rana event is set to run on November 4, according to San Mateo County. The event aims to encourage health and wellness among the Latino/a/x community, which makes up over a quarter of the population of San Mateo County. The gathering will be hosted at the South San Francisco High School and will feature a variety of wellness and cultural activities.

The theme for the event this year is "10 Años Sanando Juntos / Ten Years of Healing Together," according to a report on SMC Health. These include the Latino/a/x Collaborative, the Office of Diversity & Equity, the Spirituality Initiative, ALAS (Ayudando Latinos A Soñar), and the Native Indigenous People's Initiative.

While being born in Mexico and raised in León, Guanajuato, México, Hector Robles-Moncada initiated his alliance with BHRS back in 2007 as a clinician before he was promoted to Unit Supervisor. He may have passed on early this year, but his influence within the community isn't forgotten. Robles-Moncada was a symbol of empowerment, sparking individuals to embrace their cultured roots proudly and to find healing within their communities. His legacy reflects in the ongoing missions of Sana Sana events that aim to reduce inequities, increase representation, and offer accessible health care, as noted by SMC Health.
