Call to Action - Health Policy
AHHE, as part of the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) Hispanic Health Professional Leadership Network, joins in telling Congress that " any effort to structurally change Medicaid (by block grant or caps) and the SNAP Program will be dangerous  for the American people, especially those who rely on these programs for the livelihood of their families."

Call the U.S. Capitol operator during business hours at  202-224-3121 . They will connect you directly to your Senator or Congressional Representative to let them know where you stand. (Click here to find your Senator and click here to find your Representative). 

Inform them that your are opposed to the elimination of the Federal HRSA diversity health professions programs of Title VII - the Health Careers Opportunity Program and the Centers of Excellence. These have "provided counseling on academic preparation to apply to and to graduate from health professions schools, to increase the much needed Latinos in the health professions." 
Elena Rios, MD, MSPH, FACP, President & CEO, NHMA

AHHE Mentorship Commencement

On May 18th, the AHHE Mentorship Program had its Commencement, in where students culminated the program by presenting on a healthcare topic of choice. With the guidance and support of their mentors, mentees were able to develop their professional skills and learn more about the healthcare industry.
