Colleagues from the RWJF Center for Health Policy, the Prevention Research Center (HSC), and the NM CARES Health Disparities Center (HSC) convened at a Joint Summit entitled Addressing Health Equity through Research, Policy and Systems Change, sponsored by the NM CARES Health Disparities Center, the Prevention Research Center, and the Robert Wood Johnson Center for Health Policy at UNM.
This first time event brought together researchers, educators, and practitioners from three Centers at the University of New Mexico, along with members of staff from New Mexico’s Congressional delegation, State officials, and other key leaders concerned about the human and financial costs of New Mexico’s high rates of chronic disease, obesity, child abuse, substance abuse and other health disparities. The purpose of this summit was to forge a consortium that includes the three Centers and other partners to address and advance New Mexico’s health status through prevention, policy, and practice.
