Annual Gathering of County and Tribal Health Councils & Public Health Day

January 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - February 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Annual Gathering of County and Tribal Health Councils
& Public Health Day

Tuesday, January 31 & Wednesday, February 1, 2017

The New Mexico Alliance of Heath Councils invites members, coordinators and community partners to attend the Annual Gathering of County and Tribal Health Councils on January 31 and Public Health Day at the Legislature on February 1, in Santa Fe. This will be an opportunity to get together with friends and colleagues, to discuss the future of health councils in New Mexico, and to meet with your legislators.

Health council work can be strengthened immeasurably by learning from other health councils, and from developing collaborative approaches to common challenges. We are hoping that as many people as possible—health council members, coordinators, and community partners—will be able to attend this gathering, and if possible, to stay for Public Health Day.

Our emphasis for this meeting will be on sharing ideas, experiences, and challenges, and on identifying creative ways to work together. This year, through a grant from the Con Alma Health Foundation, we will be offering several educational sessions, which will also be recorded and made available to health councils on line.
