The New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils will coordinate the New Mexico Culture of Health over the next two and a half years, along with partners, Presbyterian Healthcare Services, the UNM Health Science’s Center for Participatory Research, the Center for Health Innovation (New Mexico Public Health Institute), New Ventures Consulting, and collaborators.
The initial focus of this project will be to work collaboratively with six health councils to increase community engagement, improve assessment, and develop policy recommendations on important public health issues, with an emphasis on under resourced communities. The grant includes money for staffing for the six selected health councils. This work will eventually be made available to all health councils who are interested in building awareness around health equity and engagement.
