LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Azteca America, the fastest-growing Hispanic television network in the United States, is proud to have hosted Dr. Elmer E. Huerta on this week's broadcast of "Issues: Caras y Voces" (Issues: Faces and Voices), hosted by veteran Latino journalist Armando Guzman.
Dr. Huerta is the first Latino to assume the presidency of the American Cancer Society. Born in Peru, he studied medicine at the University of San Marcos and Johns Hopkins University. He is founder and director of the Cancer Preventorium at the Washington Cancer Institute in the Washington Hospital Center, the only cancer prevention/screening service specifically designed for Latinos in the metro Washington, DC area.
"When I arrived in this country 20 years ago, I had to repeat my medical internship in Baltimore and woke up at three or four in the morning saying 'Lord, what am I doing here. Why have I left my country?'
"But when you aim high and dream, and say 'I'm going to get there,' those dreams will someday come true.
"If you have a path that is based on work and doing things without thinking about what will happen to you or without thinking about money, when you do things because you want to do them with love, I think you can achieve your dreams."
"Issues: Caras y Voces" features top leaders that impact the Hispanic community through one-on-one interviews conducted by Armando Guzman. Covering the White House and the Capitol for almost two decades, Mr. Guzman is one of the most respected correspondents in Washington. The interview forum airs every Monday evening during Noticiero Azteca America, the network news broadcast of Azteca America.
Past guests of "Issues: Caras y Voces" include: New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL), Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Congressman Jose E. Serrano (D-NY), Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and NIDA Director Nora Volkow.
