    RWJ/PRC/NM CARES HD Joint Summit 2015
    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.

    The fiery political fight in Washington to repeal health care reform continues, splitting the political parties and elevating uncertainty about the future of medical care. The reality, however, is that American healthcare is well along an irreversible path of reform - enrolling millions, reshaping insurance markets, and reducing medical expenditures. The steady progress of health reform raises new questions and debates about who is covered, how generously, and at what cost to taxpayers. The real action along the reform path is taking place at the level of individual states. This talk will set New Mexico’s possibilities in the context of the diverse experiences of other states. Larry Jacobs is co-chair of the Scholars Strategy Network’s Working Group on the Implementation of Health Reform and the co-author of Health Care Reform and American Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford, 2010). He is also the Walter F. and Joan Mondale Professor of Political Studies and Director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the University of Minnesota.
