Segment 5

Condición Crítica

With Dr. Elmer Huerta

In the second part of her story, Virginia Garcia shares her personal struggle as she dealt with cancer and the critical support she received from her husband.  Caregivers are crucial in the Hispanic community, and research shows that one in every four Hispanics cares for a family member suffering with a chronic condition.  Often, they suffer alone from the emotional and economic difficulties of caring for a loved one.

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
