Hispanic co-workers are eager to tell other folks at NIEHS about their culture with special events during Hispanic American Heritage Month, September 15 through October 15. With nations and communities on nearly every continent of the world, people from Spanish-speaking cultures have rich traditions to share.

Co-sponsored by NIEHS Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management (OEODM) and the Diversity Council's Hispanic Heritage Committee, the big event this year, as in past years, will be a Fiesta with a speaker, featuring samples of Hispanic cuisine, dance, music and crafts. Watch for announcements of upcoming events and join the group for fun, taste sensations and a chance to learn more about how Hispanic contributions are enriching the new American culture of the 21st century.
