The Mid-Atlantic RHEC is pleased to announce its 2014 Health Equity Hero Award: Elver Ariza-Silva! The Mid-Atlantic RHEC’s Health Equity Hero Award recognizes individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty, to reduce health disparities and improve health equity in their community, state, or region. Mr. Ariza-Silva works an Individual and Family Advocate for Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities, and leads a Quality Trust outreach program that serves Latino families with a history of being denied support services in the region due to their immigration status.
