“Tu Salud Tu Familia,” (Your Family Your Health) a weekly health and medical education program on Telemundo Washington, D.C., won the technology category at the 63rd Capital Emmy® Awards presented by the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. This is the second Capital Emmy win for the show.

Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, is a founding co-sponsor of the program created and hosted by Dr. Fabian Sandoval, CEO and Medical Director of the Emerson Clinical Research Institute. “Tu Salud Tu Familia” includes educational content on important health topics for Latinx audiences.

“Dr. Sandoval has created an invaluable resource that makes medical information more accessible to Latinx communities. We are proud to sponsor the award-winning ‘Tu Salud Tu Familia’ show and to be supporting his work to bring increased diversity to clinical trials,” said Glen de Vries, co-founder and co-CEO at Medidata. “Dr. Sandoval’s dedication to health education is unmatched in his weekly show and in the work of his research institute. We know that engaging diverse audiences in medicine and in clinical trials, will get us closer to transforming today’s life sciences impossibilities into tomorrow’s standard of care.”

Dr. Sandoval’s work on “Tu Salud Tu Familia has been even more important this past year as access to health fairs and other in-person health education opportunities have been shuttered. He has used his position as a health educator to encourage COVID-19 vaccination and hosted clinics to encourage diverse communities to get immunized.

“Increasing trust in medical institutions and removing the barriers to participation in clinical trials is central to the work of the Emerson Clinical Research Institute and by extension, our show on Telemundo. We appreciate this recognition of the quality of our programming and the support we have received from Medidata,” said Dr. Sandoval. “We started this show to make medical education accessible to our viewers and I am proud of how we have lived up to that promise.”

Medidata, along with Genentech, has been sponsoring “Tu Salud Tu Familia since its inception in 2019, recognizing the importance of sharing medical information with diverse audiences. Medidata is committed to driving greater diversity in clinical trials and broadening patient representation in clinical trials regardless of ethnicity, gender, geographic location, or socioeconomic status.
