    ¡Celebremos el mes de la herencia hispana! Let's celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!

    We are proud to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate the immeasurable contributions of the Hispanic community within Johns Hopkins Medicine and throughout the world. 

    What started as a weeklong acknowledgement in 1968 is now a monthlong celebration, from Sept. 15-Oct. 15, commemorating the best of Hispanic culture and people. We honor and reflect on the creative talents and intellectual abilities of Hispanic and Latino people whose history and culture is rooted in one of 21 countries and territories, including Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

    We encourage you to attend other informative events happening this month and to display one of the Zoom virtual backgrounds to show your support of this amazing group. As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, let us continue to build awareness, knowledge and communication across cultures and teams.
