As a Boon to the Economy, Rx for NY Unemployment

WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As New York's unemployment rate climbs to nearly 8 percent, policymakers are meeting at the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) conference March 19-22 in New York to discuss how increasing the Latino health care workforce could be key to helping stimulate the nation's economy.

Hispanic doctors and national, state and local decision-makers will meet for the 13th annual conference of NHMA, a nonprofit group based in Washington, DC, that represents Hispanic physicians in the U.S. The conference, "Building a Health Care Workforce for the Hispanic Community," is March 19-22 at New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge.
