Public health is inherently poised to examine and address a wide range of issues through a cross-sectoral lens. It includes preparedness, often an overlooked aspect in public health programming. Not exclusively related to emergencies, preparedness can encompass social determinants of health, access and funding of services, mental and behavioral health, environmental and social justice, as well as disciplines from agriculture to zoonotics, and more. Thus, in the interest of furthering and sharing research, best practices, and innovative developments regarding public health preparedness in the 21st century, NMPHA welcomes abstracts on all related topics.

Included in the theme “PREVENTION, PLANNING, AND MITIGATION: PUBLIC HEALTH THROUGH A PREPAREDNESS LENS”, there will be four tracks on topics of special interest to promoting public health preparedness in New Mexico through access, outcomes, and knowledge. These topics are: 


  • exploring challenges and successes in partnerships for public health 


  • emphasizing mental and behavioral health, primary prevention and preparedness across all jurisdictions including Sovereign American Indian Nations 


  • using technology to support public health by enhancing population- and Tribal-based situational awareness and providing actionable information for those assisting at-risk populations that may be impacted by events either natural or man-made 


  • pressing concerns related to binational and international public health in the U.S.-Mexico border region of New Mexico in an era of changing immigration policy and migration trends that require improved planning and mitigation across and within sectors 

Don't miss this incredible opportunity to connect
with your public health colleagues in New Mexico!

This event has been approved for 4.5 hours of CHW CEUs on Tuesday and 4.5 hours on Wednesday. 

CHES CEUs are pending approval.


*Individuals who have been NMPHA members within the past two years are not eligible for the complimentary membership.
