Maria Trusa is Partner and CEO of Formé Medical Center and Urgent Care and the author of I Say No More! a searing memoir about overcoming childhood sexual abuse. Aside from the medical services she and her organization provide to an underserved community of poor, often undocumented, Latinos, Trusa is the standard bearer of a movement (#ISayNoMore!) to empower women to put an end to the toxic rape culture that too many Latinos experience firsthand.
For all her tireless work on behalf of the Latino community, Latin Biz Today honored Trusa with a 2020 Latin Business Spirit Award. Watch the indomitable Maria Trusa accepting her award. Maria is also a mentor- contributor to Latin Biz Today.
