About Us

The National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF) (501c3) was established in 1994 in Washington, DC as the philanthropic arm of the National Hispanic Medical Association.  The mission of the Foundation is to support educational and research activities to improve the health of Hispanics. In 2003, the NHMA was awarded a Congressional Earmark to develop the Foundation with the support of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Senator Arlen Specter and Congressman Regula. In 2005, NHHF became affiliated with and located at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University. Recently, NHHF has moved to the New York Academy of Medicine to build its community-based research program.
