Milly Quezada, 'Queen of Merengue,' to Launch Partnership to Educate Latino Seniors About Health Care Rights
Date:2/12/2008

mbers are extremely low, Latino complaints are among the lowest: only 4 Latino seniors statewide filed a complaint last year.

"The Institute for Puerto Rican/Hispanic Elderly is proud to support this partnership to educate Latino seniors in New York," says Suleika Cabrera Drinane, MSW, President and CEO of the Institute. "Seniors have the right to express their concerns if they feel the quality of their health care is lacking. Our goal is to educate and empower them to use these rights." The Institute is a not-for-profit organization that affirms, protects and empowers elderly minority populations by ensuring that their needs are met under the law. Multilingual and multicultural services are provided by the Institute to 140,000 seniors and their families each year.

"It's important that every older New Yorker is empowered and knows their Medicare health care rights," said Commissioner Edwin Mendez-Santiago, LCSW. "The Department for the Aging is proud to join IPRO, the Institute for the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Elderly, and AARP New York to raise awareness and educate the Latino elder community around Medicare quality-of-care issues."

"AARP is a partner in this campaign not just for the state's senior citizens, but for the growing number of Baby Boomers who support and act as advocates for their aging parents," says Lois Aronstein, State Director, AARP New York. "We hope that this campaign will improve the health care system for everyone, in all age groups." Among the ways AARP is supporting the campaign is through articles in its publications and outreach to its extensive membership network.
