September 15th through October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month. Last year in Latitudes, we featured several health resources aimed towards the Hispanic population. This year, we are providing eBoard slides featuring physiological/medical Nobel Prize winners of Hispanic heritage. Additional Hispanic Heritage Month slides will be available in early October.
eBoard slides are designed to be used as part of a looping slideshow presentation on computer monitors at your institution. (Previous slides are available on NewsBits: eBoard Slides.) Click on the images below to see a preview and download the PowerPoint files by clicking on the name of each file.
