The New Mexico Public Health Association envisions New Mexico as a place where
the resources, socioeconomic conditions, and environment exist
in which ALL people can be healthy.
Our mission is to promote public health practice, policies, and systems
that support health equity in New Mexico.
We accomplish our mission by providing a forum for sharing research and practices,

About the Forum:
The NMPHA Annual Health Policy Legislative Forum provides a unique opportunity for organizations and individuals working to improve community health to come together, learn, discuss timely issues, and share their legislative proposals for the upcoming legislative session. Organizations are given a chance to make brief statements about their legislative proposals, and a booklet containing summary information about their proposals is distributed widely. Participants can identify allies and possible collaborators, as well as request support from NMPHA and other participating organizations.
Highlights of the 2015 Forum include:
Our morning panel will include a panel of freshman legislators sharing their experience at the legislature. We will have a presentation and update about the State Innovation Model work as well as the presentation of legislative proposals.
Our keynote speaker, Larry Cohen, is the founder and Executive Director of the Prevention Institute and has spearheaded the Community Centered Health Home as well as the Accountable Communities for Health.
Afternoon breakout sessions, to feature workshops on the Affordable Care Act, Violence and Public Health, Health Policy 101, and many more!
