Welcome to the NIH heo

The National Institutes of Health Hispanic Employee Organization is an independent organization under the auspices and the DHHS-approved charter granted to the DHHS Hispanic Employee Organization, with all of the entitlements and responsibilities that have been afforded to all Hispanic employee organizations in the DHHS since 1981.

The HEO addresses the needs of Hispanic employees relating to employee representation in the work force and its relationships with other national and community organizations. The HEO supports the efforts and programs of the NIH that promote equality and fairness in the workplace for all NIH employees.
