Meet one of Latinos Salud’s newest employees!
Fernando De Hoyos brings to Latinos Salud vast experience in the fields of public health and community service. Born and raised in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, Fernando studied sociology at the Pontifical Catholic University. Then he moved to New York City where he worked for community organizations to promote awareness and prevention of HIV, and to assist the most vulnerable members of our society. “Manhattan was a great school for me, as I learned that being useful to our community promotes a great sense of well being.”
An islander at heart, Fernando eventually moved to Hawaii, where he worked for an MRI research program at the School of Medicine of UH, which studied the effects of HIV in the human brain. At the same time he served as member of Life Foundation’s Board of Directors, the first and largest HIV/AIDS organization in the Pacific Rim.
Fernando is one of our HIV/STD Counselors, Linkage Specialist and Navigator. He also performs Life Coaching sessions, facilitates our ”Social” on Tuesday nights for HIV-positive men and their friends (7:00 to 9:30 PM), oversees our English class (ESL) on Wednesdays (6:00 to 8:00 PM) and our Spanish class on Saturdays (12:00 to 2:00 PM). Call Fernando for more information on these services and programs, schedule an appointment, or just drop by and say hello.
