The National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) developed the HispanicHealth.info as a portal to share key information that can improve the quality of healthcare delivered to Hispanic populations. The information is directed to health professionals and the public.
Established in 1994 in Washington, DC, the NHMA is a nonprofit organization representing Hispanic physicians in the United States. The mission of NHMA is to improve the health of Hispanics and underserved populations. In 2004, the NHMA established the National Hispanic Health Professionals Leadership Network which includes the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, the Hispanic Dental Association, the Latino Caucus of the American Public Health Association, the Latino Behavioral Health Association, the National Forum of Latino Health Executives, the NY based Association of Hispanic Healthcare Executives, the Physician Assistants for Latino Health, dietitians, podiatrists, and several national and regional Hispanic medical societies. This portal will be initially developed with the assistance and direction from this network.
