ALBUQUERQUE, NM UNM Regent President Jamie Koch announced today that the UNM Health Sciences Center healthcare summit, originally scheduled for October 7, has been delayed due to the special legislative session recently called by Governor Bill Richardson.

"We need the full participation of the New Mexico legislators who were planning to attend this vitally important healthcare summit," Koch explained. "We will reschedule the summit at a time that ensures that the people of New Mexico receive the full benefit and participation of our state's top leadership."

Additionally, the financial information that is necessary to the successful outcome of the summit is not yet complete. "The delay provides the opportunity to ensure we have full and accurate numbers," added Koch, "and it gives all parties to the summit more time to review and fully understand the financial details."

The summit is expected to be rescheduled in November, according to Koch.
