DHPLTV, Inc. has a treasured past and a bright future. We look forward to working with you!.
The television program, “Perfil Latino”, is a branch of a 501 (c) 3 organization that educates about health and social issues and works to increase cultural awareness and bridge bilingual understanding. DH/Perfil Latino TV, Inc. was incorporated in 2001, and has since been dedicated to helping local communities in Southern New Jersey. This is why the slogan of the TV Program “Perfil Latino” is “El programa de la comunidad para la comunidad”.
The mission of Diabeticos Hispanos/Perfil Latino TV, Inc. is to improve living conditions through education in general. Through a television program, as well as through community classes, events and presentations, we offer a variety of services, particularly but not exclusively to the Latino community.
We offer ESL, Reading, Writing, and Health Management classes through local community centers and we also refer people to human service resources in the area. Since the late 1990’s, we have participated and supported the organization of yearly celebrations for the local Latino communities for special holidays such as Latin Heritage History Month (including Adelante, our signature gala recognition and fundraiser event), Multicultural Art Exhibits, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and December 12 for the Virgin of Guadalupe, Cinco de Mayo, Mexican Independence Day and more.
Self-health management community workshops and leader trainings (including Salud y Bienestar by NHCOA and the Vacunémonos Program, Tomando Control, Chronic Diseases and Diabetes Self Management by Standford, and A Matter of Balance).
In partnership with the Cumberland County Community College. Classes are offered in weekly sessions for a period of ten weeks.
Youth and Senior Empowerment programs and activities.
Educational programs and activities to improve youth and senior lives are scheduled periodically.
Salud y Bienestar (Health and Well-Being) is NHCOA’s national flagship program that educates and informs Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers on how to prevent and/or manage diabetes and its complications. Originally funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Salud y Bienestar has helped thousands of Latino seniors and families over the last several years make healthier lifestyle changes.
