A Day in the Life of a HERO

Rebecca Gustaf

Tenacious and compassionate, Juliana Anastasoff is the bridge between the communities in northern New Mexico that she calls home, and the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.  The UNM Health Extension Rural Officer, or HERO, is UNM's liaison to New Mexico's rural communities, but more importantly, they are members of those communities they serve.  "Sometimes I connect the community need to the resource, and sometimes I am the resource."
