Sunday, October 14, MSPP holds Sixth Annual Lucero Memorial Run and Latino Leadership Breakfast
Date:10/12/2007

Race to Raise funds for Latino Mental Health Training Program

BOSTON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Sunday, October 14, and for the sixth year in a row since her untimely death, hundreds will run/walk to remember and symbolically "finish the race" for Dr. Cynthia Lucero, the talented young psychologist who died during the 2002 Boston marathon, and to raise funds for her legacy. That legacy is training -- through language and cultural immersion to create culturally sensitive and linguistically competent psychologists to care for the fastest growing population in the US.

Preceding this year's race, MSPP will also hold a breakfast for educational, political and Latino leaders to discuss making mental health services truly accessible for Latinos and what MSPP is doing to facilitate that access. Attending will be Representative Jamie Eldridge of Acton; Representative Elizabeth Malia of Jamaica Plain; Senator Marian Walsh of West Roxbury; Former Senator Jarret Barrios, now President of Blue Cross/Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts; and Ali Noorani, Executive Director of MIRA.

"Even among Latinos who access mental health services, 50 percent never return after their first visit, most likely due to a lack of 'cultural fit,'" says Dr. Nicholas Covino, MSPP president.

MSPP's program is the first of its kind to require Spanish fluency, requiring
