Statement of Dr. Elena Rios, MD, MSPH, President and CEO, National Hispanic Medical Association

WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement of Dr. Elena Rios, MD, MSPH, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Medical Association:

As the President and Congress labor to pass meaningful health reform this year, their work in reaching out to work with the pharmaceutical industry to bridge the coverage gap in Medicare will prove to be an important step in ensuring every American has access to affordable, high-quality health care coverage and services.

The industry should be recognized for its early commitment to work with Congress and the White House to reduce health care costs, increase access to medicines and ensure comprehensive Health Reform.

The National Hispanic Medical Association is advocating for health reform that will target Hispanics -- increase access to affordable health insurance, prevention in quality care, and a culturally and linguistically competent workforce.

Established in 1994 in Washington, DC, NHMA is a nonprofit association that represents 45,000 Hispanic physicians in the U.S. The NHMA mission is to improve the health of Hispanics and the underserved. For more information, visit
