The feminine condition is always rich in nuances. When women join together they create a network of connections so complex and interesting that those who have felt their power cannot escape the need for a cycle to be fulfilled to bring them back together.
This is the energy that is released in Latinas Summit, an event organized by Hispanic Media, which always counts with great sponsors as the case of this edition supported by Independence Blue Cross.
In Philadelphia, Latina women radiate positive vibrations for the community and they serve as the organizing force of all the initiatives developed for the common good in the City of Brotherhood Love.
They all agreed that “If we fail to nourish our souls, they wither, and without soul, life ceases to have meaning,” a wise reflection of Marion Woodman, the Canadian mythopoetic writer we bring into this context because her words represent Hispanic Media’s intention in summoning this forum for Spanish speaking women.
This year’s summit was held at Esperanza, where a group of national and international experts met to discuss Health, Beauty, Business, Education for the Future and the art of being a successful Latina.
The presentations were made by Patricia Guerra-García, MS and FACP, Senior Medical Director IBC; Elizabeth Ayala, Vice President Hispanic at Communty Counseling Service and Kersy Azócar, Vice President of Microlending at FINANTA.
This year 2019 is the third consecutive opportunity to organize the Latina Summit, in order to provide a communication platform for Latina women in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
Opening words were delivered by Ricardo Hurtado, Hispanic Media LLC and Patricia Guerra-Garcia, MD, FACP, Senior Medical Director IBC.
