Hispanic Heritage Month video vignette – Jose Palomares

Sept. 26, 2016 MCW News - In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, the Medical College of Wisconsin is publishing a series of stories and vignette that highlight and celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of individuals whose ancestors came from Spain, Portugal, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. In today’s video, Jose Palomares, M2, discusses the positive impact his heritage has had on his beliefs and work ethic.

All of the vignettes and stories are posted on MCW’s Honoring Diversity webpage.

We also would like to hear from you.
We ask Hispanic members of the MCW community to offer some insights on your culture. Answers will be shared in a future Hispanic Heritage Month story. Take the Cultural/Group Identity survey

The Medical College of Wisconsin prides itself on being an inclusive community where all individuals are valued and respected. We are committed to recognizing, understanding and appreciating the variety of individual differences that make up our community because we know that these differences make our community stronger and more vibrant. The diversity of MCW continues to be an important source of innovative ideas and creative accomplishments.

Throughout the year, we aim to celebrate the stories and histories of ethnic and cultural identities because together, all of these stories make up the larger United States narrative. We hope that through these stories and vignettes, we can honor the diversity of our faculty, staff and students and promote inclusion for all those who make up our community.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for how we can celebrate cultural/group identities at MCW, please share with our editorial team, MCWNews@mcw.edu.
