We have all personally or professionally felt the effects of the recent economic recession and its political ramifications, whether directly or within the communities we serve. However, times of difficulty also bring new opportunities to strengthen old relationships, make new alliances, and reaffirm our fundamental values as public health professionals.
Please join us this year to share past successes, current challenges, innovative solutions, and long-term visions and plans for a healthier and more just New Mexico.
A highlight of this year's conference will be our three dynamic keynote speakers.
