Dia de la Mujer Latina became a reality when Venus together with the Mexican Consulate’s office, assessed, planned, coordinated, collaborated and implemented the first non-traditional culturally relevant Latino family health fiesta. This cultural intervention involved a community-wide collaboration of Latino clubs, private and non-profit organizations, state and county health departments, community merchants, media, volunteers and other healthcare providers to provide early detection and screening for breast/cervical/prostate cancer, HIV, Diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Since May 10, 1997, more than 96,000 Latinas have registered at our 1-day health fiesta with over 80% receiving patient navigation. This health fiesta model is currently recognized as a “best practice” and celebrated in 40 cities, as well as Latin America. Día de la Mujer Latina is a non-profit (501c3) organization in the state of Texas and globally acknowledged for its successful outreach strategies within the Latino Community.
