Galbraith Awarded Governor's Award for Outstanding New Mexico Women.

 

Pamela Galbraith, administrator for two psychiatric hospitals, and all behavioral health programs at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, has been awarded the prestigious 2003 Governor's Award for Outstanding New Mexico Women, which is presented by the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women.  Galbraith is one of 20 statewide recipients of the award.

 

The awards honor women who have shown activism and commitment to the women and families of New Mexico.  This year's recipients have distinguished themselves in this area, as well as made efforts to improve the status of New Mexican women and girls.  Of the 20 award recipients, two will be nominated to the Women's Hall of Fame.  The Hall of Fame winners were announced at a banquet on May 3, which will commemorate the Commission's 30th anniversary.

 

Galbraith was awarded the honor due to her interests in rural New Mexico.  Galbraith has fed her interest in rural economic development by being involved in the New Mexico Rural Development Response Council, which is presently involved in a one million dollar grant, which will help communities spark economic development.  Galbraith has served the council as a board member, vice-president, and president. 

 

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center's mission is to provide added value to health care through leadership in providing innovative, collaborative education; advancing frontiers of science through research critical to the future of health care; delivering health care services that are at the forefront of science; and facilitating partnerships with public and private biomedical and health enterprises.  For more information on the UNM Health Sciences Center visit http://.hsc.unm.edu.
