NAHN Corporate Members
We value and understand the importance of diversity among our employees around the world and actively support the Hispanic community. Additionally, Lilly has taken a lead on educating about health care disparities and providing health care information to diverse communities.
As part of Lilly's commitment to overcoming health disparities, the company is working to increase Hispanic representation in clinical trials. In the United States, minority populations have historically and consistently been under-represented in clinical trials, which evaluate the safety and efficacy of new medicines and treatments.
Through the company’s clinical diversity strategy, Lilly is identifying and investing in new relationships with clinical investigators who are likely to treat more diverse patients. As a result, more than 229 new clinical trial sites have been introduced in communities of color since May 2008.
Lilly is committed to cultural competency and ensuring multicultural groups have access to health care information to decrease health care disparities through ongoing community and national outreach. The company is proud to work with the National Association of Hispanic Nurses by sponsoring its annual conference and contributing to its scholarship program. Additionally, Lilly plans to continue to work with NAHN on activities to promote better health and health awareness through social media and other channels.
Additionally, Lilly’s outreach has included sponsoring National Council of La Raza conferences and programming, including Promotores de Salud, a lay health workers program, and De Blanco y Negro a Colores: Entendiendo la Depresión (“From Black and White to Color: Understanding Depression”). Lilly was the first sponsor of 2011 Hispanic Health Institute Health Summit and received Corporate Partner of the Year recognition from the National Hispanic Council on Aging in 2010. We also support the National Hispanic Medical Association.
Currently, Lilly and NHCOA are working together to develop initiatives designed to promote diabetes prevention and improve diabetes management among Hispanic older adults and their families through the development of culturally--and linguistically--appropriate and age-sensitive educational efforts. This program aims to reduce the significant disparities that exist between Hispanic and non-Hispanic adults in the United States.
The inclusion of diversity also is essential in our extensive health education initiatives globally. For Spanish-language resources and interactive tools, visit the Español page of http://www.lillyforbetterhealth.com/Pages/EnEspanol.aspx.
