Faustino Bernadett Supports the National Hispanic Health Foundation
Updated: Jun 3, 2022
Dr. Faustino Bernadett is a Bronze sponsor for this year's National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship Gala, which is hosted by the National Hispanic Health Foundation.
The event, which is the fourteenth annual, will be held at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel on November 16, 2021. The National Hispanic Foundation (NHHF) is the philanthropic arm of the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA).
During the gala scholarship recipients will be announced from the Western United States, as well as the Hispanic Health Leadership Awardees who inspire us with their leadership for change in the healthcare for our community.
Hispanics are the largest ethnic group in the United States, yet there is a dearth of Hispanic health professionals with cultural and linguistic skills to deliver quality care for this growing population. In addition, federal, state, local government, and private sector healthcare agencies have minimal Hispanic representation in top leadership positions that can develop policies and programs targeted to the Hispanic community.
NHHF is responding to these challenges by developing this unique national scholarship program to reward students in health professional schools for exceptional academic performance, leadership, and commitment to serving the Hispanic community.
Faustino Bernadett is a proud supporter of this cause as he truly believes that these scholarship recipients are the future Hispanic leaders of our nation.
