For the fourth consecutive year, Latinas Lifestyle presents activities designed to create bonds and enhance relationships with the Latina community in the Philadelphia.
Latinas Lifestyle Fair is an event organized by Hispanic Media, where attendees enjoyed recreational and educational activities and invested in their professional and personal growth.
On Friday, the Concilio dressed up for two important seminars:
Latinas during COVID-19
“Latinas During COVID-19” by Dr. Jose R. Torradas MD, FACEP, who is Medical Director of the organization Unidos Contra COVID Pennsylvania; Board Certified Emergency Physician and Bilingual Medical Correspondent. He graduated from the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine, with a B.S. in Biology/Biological Sciences, General from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); and a Master of Business Administration – MBA from Fitchburg State University.
He completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at North Shore, the flagship hospital of Northwell, one of the largest health systems in New York. He currently lives and works outside of Philadelphia.
He is one of the most qualified voices in medicine to discuss the pandemic that has ravaged the world for more than a year.
Mental health: The new norm
“Mental health: The new norm” by Elizabeth Ayala and Héctor Ayala, who are in charge of Hispanic Community Counseling Services, a Latino-operated outpatient agency that provides personal and family mental and behavioral health intervention services, and has become more relevant since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the pandemic for COVID-19.
Since then, personal, work and family habits have changed for many, causing anxiety and depression, without them knowing how to identify them, much less manage them.
Each presentation provided alternative points of view on these increasingly important and current topics. Attendees enjoyed the experts and question and answer sessions. At the same time, recreational activities such as fitness classes, tasting of Goya Foods products, free COVID-19 tests and contests were held.
These activities were made possible thanks to the support of Goya Foods, Aurora Latino Home Care, Concilio Philadelphia, RDS Home Care, Hispanic Community Counseling Services and El Sol Latino Newspaper.
