Donate to Puerto Rico for Disaster Relief

The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) is asking for donations for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

Just a little over two years since Hurricane Maria hit the island, Puerto Rico is dealing with the aftermath of the severe damage following a series of strong earthquakes. Our hearts are with those that must face the resulting devastating conditions as they once again rebuild and plan for the future. NAHN stands with Puerto Rico to ensure that little by little we can work together to repair its fragile economic and healthcare resources.

Please donate today to help NAHN assist its partners in Puerto Rico that provide critical health services. Follow this link to make your tax-deductible donation. 

NAHN is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Sickle Cell Equity for Hispanics: NAHN Innovations and Partnerships

Hispanics comprise 1:10 persons with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), a debilitating disorder that is rare, familial, chronic and deadly.  Hispanic comprise over 40% of newborns diagnosed with Sickle Cell Trait (SCT) in selected States.  Despite this high prevalence and treatment advances, Hispanic Nurses and the larger Hispanic community have limited knowledge about sickle cell, resulting in avoidable morbidity, isolation, poor quality of life, and shortened lifespan. Disparities are grave in the Western US, home to pockets of geographically disbursed SCD populations, including immigrants and refugees, and a rise in multicultural families, all increasing SCD prevalence. September, which celebrates both Hispanic Heritage and Sickle Cell Awareness, is the perfect time to enhance Sickle Cell equity in Hispanics, focusing on increasing awareness, nursing competencies, and access to care.

CLICK HERE to watch a webinar jointly sponsored by The Pacific Regional Sickle Cell Collaborative (PSCRC), a 13 state federal HRSA supported initiative, and the National Association of Hispanic Nurses -Los Angeles Chapter (NAHN-LA). 

It's important for healthcare providers, community workers, policy makers, and other SCD supporters to know that SCD affects diverse groups so that all people with SCD can be properly diagnosed and treated. CDC is sharing new resources to help spread awareness about the many faces of SCD. 

    A Message for Healthcare Providers: Sickle Cell Has Many Faces.
