NMPHA convenes this statewide Health Policy Legislative Forum every year to bring together organizations and individuals who are advocating for legislative policies in the New Mexico Legislature. The Forum provides an opportunity to share potential and proposed legislation, to build alliances and find partners, and to learn how the New Mexico Legislature functions. In addition, workshops on special topics are presented to encourage dialogue and deepen our awareness.
Each year a booklet is published with information on all proposals that are presented during the Health Policy Legislative Forum.
