    In NMPHA’s 101 st year, we are focusing on the foundational values of public health practice – “Public Health 101.” For this year’s annual conference, we welcome abstracts on all public health topics, with the understanding that every health professional’s work is essential to promoting health equity in our state. In addition, there will be four tracks to open up discussions on how certain issues are being addressed today, and these are described below.

    HEALTH EQUITY IN RURAL, FRONTIER, AND TRIBAL COMMUNITIES

    New Mexico is a largely rural state, and home to 19 pueblos, 3 Apache tribes, and part of the Navajo Nation. Therefore, our state has experts and organizations from rural, frontier, and tribal communities who understand the issues around improving health equity in their communities, and have been working on these issues for many years. 

    INNOVATIVE APPROACHES FOR ACCESS TO FOOD, HOUSING, & BASIC NEEDS

    Health equity is impossible without adequate access to necessities for survival such as food, housing, and other basic needs. Of course, simply having access to basic needs is not the goal; public health seeks to ensure equitable access to healthy and stable resources for all people. 

    ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND PRESERVING NATURAL RESOURCES

    Every person is impacted by the environment around them and by the availability of natural resources. In New Mexico, this includes (but is not limited to) our water resources, the health of our wildlife, and our built environments, as well as using data to track patterns in environmental health. 

    IMPROVING ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE RESOURCES

    Improving access to healthcare resources is increasingly important with aging populations, behavioral health conditions having increasing impacts on mortality, and the large portion of New Mexico residents living in rural areas. Some barriers to healthcare access are shortages of providers, culturally- and linguistically- appropriate services, and patient navigators; stigma; and transportation. 

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