His role as a leader – at both the systems- 和 community-levels – brought a critical voice to some of the most important conversations 和 decisions for bringing health closer in reach for all Coloradans.

在一个 video 展示他毕生的作品Dr. Licona shares his challenging, yet rewarding, journey as a community health leader:

“这一切,为什么? ... I’ve been able to focus my efforts within the health care arena to push forth those ideals that we had of the Chicano movement of improving the living status of our population, 我们的社区,为正义而战, 争取平等. Fighting for those things that we think each one of us deserves, 因为我们是人,我们呼吸空气, 我们在这个星球上,我们在一起.”
