Hey @jimmykimmellive, we nominate a different kind of #HealthCareHero. Eligio Velasquez is a direct support professional (DSP), meaning he supports people with intellectual/developmental disabilities with everything from daily health care needs to safely connecting to the community during the pandemic.

Eligio has worked for 26 years as a DSP for nonprofit @arcaopeningdoors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was named ANCOR's 2020 National DSP of the Year. Once you hear his inspiring story, you'll know exactly why he was selected from 300+ nominees and is perfect for #HealthCareHero recognition.

Eligio, who has a disability himself, makes it possible for the men he supports to live in the community, not an institution. When he saw one of the men he supports, Bob, conversing in American Sign Language at a community event, Eligio realized Bob wasn't nonverbal; he had a hearing disability.

In response, this #HealthCareHero sprang into action, researching programs for people with hearing disabilities, securing an ASL interpreter to attend medical appointments with Bob, and coordinating with other ARCA staff to identify ways for Bob to be more included in the community.

DSPs like Eligio may not be the first people to come to mind when you think #HealthCareHero, but he's the definition of a hero. From helping people wash hands and wear masks to ensuring they recover quickly if they become sick, Eligio is rocking it on the frontlines each & every day!

Check out the video below of Eligio accepting his award during a virtual awards ceremony and you'll immediately see why he deserves to be featured on #JimmyKimmelLiveFromHisHouse!
