Hispanic Heritage Speech for the
Health Resources and Services Administration, Office of Minority Health, and
Program Support Center
Of the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Elena Rios, MD, MSPH
September 21, 2010

Dr. Graham, Dr. Espinosa, Dr. Raggio-Pagan and honored guests –

I am president and ceo, NHMA ---mission is to empower Hispanic physician leaders to improve the health of Hispanic populations. We now are the umbrella organization to individual members and soon to have institutional members, as well as our NHMA Council of Medical Societies -all Hispanic medical societies - and have network with the national Hispanic health professional associations - nurses, dentists, mental health groups, health executives, latino caucus of apha, dieticians.

Good Morning. It is great to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with all of you today, especially because HRSA, OMH and PSC are so vital to the health of all Americans and celebration is a time to feel good and positive. I would like to share my story and vision for how Hispanics can become healthier through your agency efforts especially with the new Affordable Health Care Act as its new patient’s rights go into effect tomorrow – the 6 month anniversary of the law.
President Obama’s Administration is the first to transform this great nation’s health care system to one of affordable access to services ---prevention and primary care and behavioral health and oral health ---with interdisciplinary health care delivery teams and home health and most important, public health infrastructure with a focus on diversity, health equity and leadership. The National Hispanic Medical Association looks forward to working with all of you to develop your new rules and regulations.
We know that the Hispanic population now represents 50 million or 16 percent of the population, the largest group of minorities, and will be one out of four Americans in 30 years or in one more generation. We are a young population with low SES profile – low income jobs, low education attainment, living in poverty or blue collar households and neighborhoods with few health services or healthy lifestyle services. So we have lots of need ---and we are here to celebrate how YOU FULFILL THAT NEED For so many Hispanics.

Let me tell you my story -----download full story as a pdf.
