This year Latinos Progresando celebrated Mother’s Day with over 250 parents, children, and families at the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón (For your Heart) event. The annual celebration invited attendees to enjoy a morning of entertainment, free giveaways, and a nutritious meal at Mount Sinai Hospital. The program featured a performance from a local youth marimba band and honored outstanding women for their work with Community Impact Awards. Marshall Square Resource Network staff also facilitated a discussion with attendees on the social determinants of health to gauge the health needs and interests of the community.
A special congratulations to Araceli Mena, Marycruz Dominguez, Lourdes Castillo, Judy Idrovo, Karina Gutierrez, Marcy Gonzalez, and Adela Perez from Latinos Progresando for the well-deserved recognition.
