Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Americans are one of the largest ethnic groups in the United States today, and we recognize their important presence in our local communities. The Hispanic and Latino population is one of the fastest growing demographic groups in the communities Geisinger serves, and it’s important that we recognize the rich history, customs and traditions of this diverse group.
During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we all have an opportunity to celebrate, listen and learn about the accomplishments of generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our society.
