Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15), several members of our division with Hispanic heritage share what they appreciate about their respective cultures as well as what it was like supporting the medical center during the pandemic.
Additionally, the CUIMC Latinx Employee Resource Group is hosting events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. For more information about this group and other employee resource groups, please visit the CUIMC HR Staff Diversity & Inclusion webpage.
