Date:4/14/2008

WASHINGTON, April 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hispanic doctors from across the U.S. meet here April 17-20 to share healthcare innovations affecting Latinos and the findings of three "Health Disparities and Hispanics Leadership Summits" by the Office of Minority Health (OMH) and the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA).

The doctors are attending the 12th annual conference of the National Hispanic Medical Association, a nonprofit group based in Washington, DC, that represents Hispanic physicians in the U.S. NHMA is teaming with federal and state governments and the private sector for its conference -- "Health Care Reform & Health Disparities: A Priority for Hispanic Communities."

A press conference on the summit findings to eliminate health disparities will be at 10:30 a.m., Friday, April 18, in the Dupont Room, Washington Hilton, 1919 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, D.C.

Invited speakers include Dr. Garth N. Graham, deputy assistant secretary for minority health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); Dr. Ciro Sumaya, dean, School of Rural Public Health, Texas A&M Health Science Center; Josefina Carbonell, HHS assistant secretary for aging; Dr. Carolyn Clancy, director, Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, HHS; Kerry Weems, acting administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, HHS; and Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-CA).
