Since announcing the strategic alliance between the AHA and UnidosUS last year, the organizations with leadership from the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity have developed a number of resources and participated in various activities to advance health equity and eliminate gaps for the Latino community.

These include:

  • Videos Highlight Community Collaboratives – Two new videos spotlight innovative partnerships that promote action and collaboration between community and health care leaders to advance health equity. One video spotlights community partnerships led by Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, and the second spotlights efforts led by Saint Anthony Hospital. 
  • Healthy Equitable and Resilient (H.E.R.) Communities Podcast Series – The H.E.R. communities initiative highlights AHA member hospitals and UnidosUS affiliates working together to respond to challenges of disparities, violence and trauma. The podcast series explores a community's efforts to bring together health care leaders and community leaders to address key health challenges collectively. Listen here.
