Daniel Hernandez, Jr.—the openly gay intern who is credited with helping to save the life of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in a January mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz.—will speak at a Feb. 19 luncheon at the 29th Annual National Conference of the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI).

The USHLI conference will be held Feb. 17-20 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, 301 E. North Water. The luncheon will take place 12:15-1:45 p.m.

In a statement Hernandez said, "I really do not consider myself a hero, but I am extremely humbled by the idea that great organizations such as USHLI believe that I am. To me, the real heroes are the people that spend their entire lives helping others."

For more about USHLI and the conference, visit www.ushli.org .
