WHEREAS, The Honorable Marty Quinn, Alderman of the 13th Ward, has apprised the members of the chamber of Dr. Jorge Cavero's dedication to serving the Latino Community; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Cavero came to the United States at the age of six. His father, a physician and active community member, inspired him to think bigger than himself.

He eventually began to assist his father in the clinic, leading him to recognize the need for elevated care in the Latino community; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Cavero's initiative did not gain initial support from local hospitals and organizations.
