HSC Leadership Hosting Community Meetings

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center (UNM HSC) has committed itself to a new Vision: “UNM HSC will work with community partners to help New Mexico make more progress in health and health equity than any other state by 2020.”

Representatives from the HSC are meeting in towns throughout the state to follow up with community request to partner in support of their health priorities. The meetings are the next step in the creation of Community Academic Extension Hubs, local offices that will act as local extension arms of the HSC.

Taos Thursday, August 18                  Taos Civic Plaza 3:45 - 4:15 p.m.
