September 15th to October 15th officially represents Hispanic Heritage Month or Latinx Heritage Month as it is becoming known.  The celebration was initially one week and started by President Johnson to recognize the cultural contributions of Hispanic Americans.  President Reagan later extended it to one month.  With over 62 million people now within the U.S. identifying as part or wholly Hispanic, there could not be a better time to celebrate some of the most influential Hispanics in U.S. history.  While it is impossible to pay tribute to all Latinos who have made substantial contributions, FirstLantic Healthcare wants to recognize five extraordinary people who were first in their fields and given so much to America.   Rita Moreno Rita Moreno is the first Hispanic American woman [...]
