Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15 - Oct 15)

Hispanic Heritage Month is a celebration of the histories, cultures, and contributions of our ancestors who came from primarily speaking Spanish countries.  

The Yale Latino Networking Group is currently finalizing this year’s virtual programming, which will include cooking demonstrations, dance performances, educational sessions, and more!

In the meantime, please consider checking out upcoming Hispanic Heritage Month events led by our community partners:

Juneteenth

Juneteenth is a celebration, but also a time for reflection and a call to action. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted health disparities as Black, Latinx, and Indigenous Americans died from COVID-19 at nearly three times the rate of white Americans. Inadequate access to health care and other social determinants of health also result in disparities in the prevalence of common diseases, such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer.

This Juneteenth, we call on the Yale School of Medicine community and the nation as a whole to reflect on how we can reduce health inequity and promote diversity and inclusion. We encourage you to learn more and utilize the Juneteenth resources compiled by Kimberly Goff-Crews, Secretary and Vice President for University Life at Yale.

Pride Month

Pride Month originated in 1969, when police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, and were met with resistance as thousands of gay, lesbian, and transgender supporters took to the streets. The rainbow flag, symbolizing the LGBTQ+ community, followed in 1978. Today, Pride Month offers us a chance to show public support for equal treatment and opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community. It is also an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to improving education around health equity for the LGBTQ+ community and LGBTQ+ youth in part due to stigma and lack of awareness in the health care community.

Information about Pride and LGBTQ+ affinity groups at Yale can be found among resources compiled by the Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library.
