Jane L. Delgado, PhD, began her term as a McLean Hospital trustee in September 2022, a role she said unites her interest in mental health and organizational governance.
A passionate and longstanding advocate for health, Delgado is president and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health.
She is a practicing clinical psychologist, a champion for accessible health care in underserved communities, and a recognized leader and author. She was the first woman to serve as president and chief executive officer of what was the Coalition of Spanish Speaking Mental Health Organizations.
Prior to her role at the Alliance, Delgado served in the Immediate Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), eventually becoming special assistant on minority affairs.
She was a key contributor to the “Report of the Secretary’s Task Force on Black and Minority Health”—a landmark government study of health in racial and ethnic minorities.
