Adriana Beorlegui, project manager and managing editor at HolaDoctor, recently received a Maggie Award for Media Excellence from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Hispanic health company announced Thursday.

Ms. Beorlegui's award recognizes her online media coverage of the Affordable Care Act.

"Planned Parenthood's wonderful job empowering Hispanic women on health issues is crucial," Ms. Beorlegui said in a news release. "Being able to make educated decisions on health-related matters has lifetime-lasting effects."

The Maggie Award, named after Margaret Sanger, PPFA's founder, honors "exceptional achievement in media coverage of reproductive rights and health-care issues through news and commentary," Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said in the release.

Cultural barriers and immigration issues can make it hard for Hispanics to get health insurance, according to HolaDoctor. The organization helps get information to the Hispanic community. In partnership with Univision, it reached 15 million visitors a month last year, with 300 million healthcare reform page views.

The company also provides marketing services to companies looking for a piece of the Hispanic consumer pie.
