WALNUT CREEK, Calif. and WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 11, 2015 – NAHN is one of two nonprofit associations that have been awarded a grant that will enable them--for the first time ever--to expand their reach nationally via virtual conferences.

The Serving Those Who Serve Others grant, awarded by iCohere, will provide pro-bono virtual conferences to the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) and the National AfterSchool Association.

NAHN will host its first virtual conference to educate nurse educators serving multicultural communities on how to use educate Latinos on the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.Many Hispanics, who have relied on urgent care or emergency services, are now acquiring health care coverage for the first time in their lives through the Affordable Care Act.

Project Director Adriana Perez, Ph.D., ANP-BC, FAAN, an assistant professor at Arizona State University,
said the virtual conference will build on a larger initiative developed for targeting and educating nurse educators in hard to reach communities and provide bilingual assistance to individuals and families with their enrollment process.

“When we announced the 2015 Serving Those Who Serve Others grant last winter, we never anticipated receiving so many outstanding applications from organizations ready to design and host their first virtual conference,” said Pascal Kaplan, CEO of iCohere. “Each of the 24 applications clearly conveyed both the organization’s high level of commitment to those whom they serve, as well as their eagerness to expand the effectiveness of their outreach by hosting a major online event. It was a difficult decision and we are very proud to support these visionary programs.”
