Segment 2

Condición Crítica

A television special about the health care issues that impact the Hispanic community, hosted by prevention specialist Dr. Elmer Huerta.

Health disparities in the Hispanic community are alarming: 25 percent have never had a cholesterol check; 70 percent of people older than 50 have never had a colonoscopy; and more than 50 percent of women have never had a mammogram. Virginia Garcia, a cancer survivor in Denver who lost her job at the time of diagnosis, tells the inspiring story of how she advocated for herself and found alternative forms of financial assistance for her cancer treatments.

About Condición Crítica

Condición Crítica 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
