On October 15th, Congreso closed Hispanic Heritage Month with a virtual fundraising event, ‘Congreso Celebra’, where we recognized extraordinary staff, honored contributors to Philadelphia’s Latino community, and showcased our impact during the COVID-19 pandemic!
Adaptability was the theme throughout Congreso Celebra, and also serves as a core value at Congreso– “we rely on the resilience and resourcefulness of our employees, clients, and community to adjust to changing conditions while maintaining our commitment to meaningful outcomes.” This year we’ve seen this value come to life in our day-to-day work like never before.
We were honored to recognize and celebrate our amazing 2020 Congreso Champions:
Gregory Gutierrez, CHIP Community Outreach Coordinator at
Independence Blue Cross
Ana Martinez-Donate, Professor of Community Health & Prevention
