Dr. Antonia Novello to Address USHLI National Conference

USHLI is pleased to announce that Dr. Antonia Novello, the nation’s first woman and first Hispanic to serve as Surgeon General of the United States, will deliver the keynote address at our 38th National Conference. She will address the Latino Leaders Recognition Luncheon at 12:30pm, Saturday, February 22 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
Dr. Antonia Coello Novello was born in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. She earned her B.S. degree in 1965 and M.D. degree in 1970 from the University of Puerto Rico. She completed her subspecialty training in Pediatric Nephrology at the University of Michigan and Georgetown University. She also earned a Master’s in Public Health in 1982 and a Doctorate in Public Health in 2000 from Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.  In addition she has received 53 Honorary Doctorates. In 1990 Dr. Novello was sworn in by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor as the 14th Surgeon General of the United States. 

Dr. Juan Andrade, USHLI President, said “We are honored to have the most accomplished Hispanic professional in the nation as our keynote speaker. We have seen greatness shine among Hispanic farmworkers, union workers, astronauts, writers, the arts, theatre, music, academia, the sciences, activists, the military, public officials and many others across the spectrum, as Dr. Novello has in providing health and medical care to all persons, especially the poor and less fortunate.”

The survey also found that 7% of our attendees are pursuing an advanced degree. Most conference participants are or will become the most influential Hispanic leaders of their generation and will help govern our cities, schools, states and, indeed, a nation that will become 25% Hispanic during their lifetime.
