The Familia y Salud Program at Holy Name Medical Center was developed to address the medical, linguistic and cultural needs of Latinos in northern New Jersey. The program provides community outreach initiatives, such as health fairs, screenings, educational programs, and physician lectures. Familia y Salud is dedicated to caring for the underserved and those at risk for developing preventable diseases by engaging the Hispanic community in Hudson County with events led by Spanish-speaking physicians and other health care providers.
At Holy Name, everything we do is driven by our passion for healing and the understanding that each of us is unique and precious. It's the reason we attract the area's finest physicians and are committed to providing leading-edge clinical care and advanced technology. We are dedicated to caring for the underserved and those at risk for developing preventable diseases by offering a variety of services through community outreach, screening and education.
People of Hispanic/Latino origin are twice as likely as other ethnic groups to be diagnosed with diabetes and are at much higher risk for asthma, cardiovascular disease, and certain types of cancers. These disparities are driven by genetic predisposition as well as cultural and socioeconomic barriers, such as lack of health insurance or transportation, that make it difficult for some Hispanics/ Latinos to practice preventative care or access treatment.
