Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration- October 4, 2013

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th to October 15th, the Office of Diversity Affairs hosted its first Hispanic Heritage Month Event on Friday, October 4, 2013 during lunch time in the MEB Courtyard. The hour long festivity included a performance by Mariachi los Toritos and El Paso Community College Ballet Folklorico. The department also provided approximately 150 attendees with tacos from Tacoholics. Jessica Calderon-Mora, Sr. Director for the Office of Diversity Affairs, wants to show the campus that promoting diversity can be both educational and fun. Because Latinos comprise over 80% of the El Paso population, it is important that we introduce our future physicians to the culture with which they will be surrounded. Ms. Calderon-Mora and Mayra Morales strived to make this event as colorful and bright as possible so that all of those in attendance would truly feel like they were at a fiesta.
