Each year Johnson & Johnson celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the important contributions of Hispanics and Latino Americans in the U.S. and celebrate their culture and heritage. This year’s celebratory events at Johnson & Johnson will address issues of importance within the Hispanic community. Dr. Jane Delgado, president and CEO of National Alliance for Hispanic Health will be speaking about Health Care Disparities, Unmet Medical Needs, Genomics, and Future Prospects. Joaquin Duato, executive vice president and worldwide chairman, Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson, will be speaking on leadership lessons from his career and sharing insights on how embracing diversity can make you a more effective leader. Also, for the fifth consecutive year, Johnson & Johnson again participated in the NYC Hispanic Day Parade on October 9th, celebrating our continued partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships and student support services to exceptional Hispanic American students. “Our support of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund exemplifies Johnson & Johnson’s longstanding support for the Hispanic community,” said Wanda Bryant Hope, chief diversity officer, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. “Our Credo inspires us all to be a positive influence in the communities where we live and work.”
