UNMC: Women’s Center for Advancement Honors Dr. Athena Ramos

Dr. Athena Ramos, assistant professor in the Center for Reducing Health Disparities at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Public Health, is among 10 women who will be honored June 13 at the Omaha Marriott-Capital District as part of the 32nd annual Tribute to Women Lunch for the Women’s Center for Advancement.

Since 1987, the Tribute to Women honor has been given to 300 amazingly talented and incredibly compassionate women who serve the Omaha community — women who led by example in helping women and girls lead safe, healthy, self-determined lives. Dr. Ramos will be recognized for her exceptional work in reducing health disparities among farmworkers and Latinos throughout the region.

Dr. Ramos also is engaged in several community organizations — among them the South Omaha Neighborhood Alliance and the Metro Omaha Tobacco Action Coalition — and is the former president of the board of directors of the Immigrant Legal Center.
