Latino Health Initiative (LHI)

The Montgomery County Latino Health Initiative (LHI) is committed to improve the quality of life for Latinos living in Montgomery County by contributing to the development and implementation of an integrated, coordinated, culturally and linguistically competent health wellness system that supports, values, and respects Latino families and communities. Health Promoter Program, "Vias de la Salud," is designed to improve the health and well-being of the low income Latino community of Montgomery County.

The Program for Licensure of Foreign-Trained Health Professionals, called The Welcome Back Center, provides a comprehensive, integrated and coordinated approach to effectively address the needs and decrease the challenges and barriers that foreign-trained nurses encounter in Maryland while obtaining nursing licenses. The program includes: a support and guidance system, academics, practical exposure to the U.S. healthcare system, and mentoring.
