Condición Crítica

With Dr. Elmer Huerta

Out of the more than 46 million Hispanics who live in the United States, one-quarter live in poverty and one-third are uninsured. Many suffer from chronic health conditions and have limited access to health insurance and preventive care. Thanks to Remote Area Medical, the largest free health clinic in the United States, thousands of uninsured people in Los Angeles, many of them Hispanic, received medical, dental and eye exams for the first time in years.

About Condición Crítica

Condición Critica is an hour-long television special that brings attention to disparities in health status and health care in the Hispanic community and the importance of prevention. The show tells the personal stories of Hispanics who live with disease and chronic health problems; struggle to pay for their medications or medical bills; do not have the luxury of visiting a doctor when they have a pain that might be the sign of something more serious; and have "fallen through the cracks" because, though insured, their out-of-pocket medical costs are too high. The show also highlights some of the people and organizations that are serving those in need and the growing trend of travelling overseas for medical care.

The show is hosted by Dr. Elmer Huerta, a renowned specialist in prevention. Other nationally recognized experts in the show include:

  • Dr. Maria Rosa, National Council of La Raza
  • Yanira Cruz, President, National Hispanic Council on Aging
  • Dr. Ciro Sumaya, National Hispanic Medical Association
  • Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, Partnership on Prevention
  • Dr. Annette Ramirez, Latinos for National Health Insurance
