Hispanics and health

The Vme TV network partnered with the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) to raise awareness of Hispanic health-related matters.

Programming from the partnership will encourage Latinos to lead a healthier lifestyle and will identify Hispanic educational and health-related needs. Topics of focus include nutrition, health plans and insurance coverage, management of chronic disease, and preventive care, according to a news release.

"This partnership with NMHA is a natural fit for Vme TV as it amplifies our goal of strengthening the Hispanic community through resources that will enrich their daily lives," said Eligio Cedeņo, CEO of Vme Media Inc., in a press release. "By continuing to strengthen the community we make having a prosperous and healthy future an attainable goal."

Vme has continuously made efforts to offer the U.S. Hispanic community resources that promote upward mobility and a higher standard of living.

Vme also works with organizations, such as ASPIRA, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and local chambers of commerce.
