Celebrate Culture During Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month
How to Celebrate Culture
Latinx and Hispanic Heritage month is a time to recognize the achievements and contributions of all Latinx and Hispanic American champions who have inspired many to achieve success. In addition, celebrate culture to those who have paved the way for others to have the opportunity to do the same.
The 30 days of Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month is a period meant for recognition, education and celebration. At Lifeline Connections we are proud to take this time to recognize all Latinx and Hispanic peoples including our patients and staff as we learn more about their history.
We encourage you to reach out to the Latinx and Hispanic individuals in your life and celebrate with them. Let us recognize, honor and celebrate characteristics for which this population is known. For example, hard work, family and community. Additionally the optimism many have even though circumstances may not be good and the ability to see opportunity and seize the moment.
‘echele ganas’ – roughly translates to “Give it your all!”
