Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!
Washington, DC (October 9, 2013) — The National Association of Hispanic Nurses would like to recognize its members during October, which is Hispanic Heritage Month! This year’s theme, “Hispanics: Serving and Leading Our Nation with Pride and Honor,” highlights important Latino contributions in our nation’s history which have shaped such establishments as industry and research, faith, education, arts and entertainment and health.
In a statement released on Sept. 13, 2013, President Barack Obama honored the contributions of Hispanic Americans:
“From the earliest days of our Republic, Hispanic Americans have written crucial chapters in our national story. Hispanics have honorably defended our country in war and built prosperity during times of peace. They run successful businesses, teach our next generation of leaders, and pioneer scientific and technological breakthroughs. This month, America acknowledges these vital contributions and celebrates our Hispanic heritage… Hispanic Americans represent an array of distinct and vibrant cultures, each of which enriches communities in valuable ways. Just as America embraces a rich blend of backgrounds, those who journey to our shores embrace America. Sharing the dream of equality and boundless opportunity, many Hispanics have marched for social justice and helped advance America's journey toward a more perfect Union.” Read the full press release here.
From all of us at NAHN, thank you again for the work that you do, and Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
