HSC Sponsoring Native American Health Forum

All tribal members and other community members interested in helping to improve Native American healthcare at UNM Hospitals are invited to attend a Native American Community Health Forum to be held Thursday, February 21.

 The forum, which is being sponsored by the UNM Health Sciences Center Community Affairs Advisory Council and the Bernalillo County Community Health Council, will be seeking community members to share their experiences receiving healthcare from UNM, the U.S. Indian Health Service and other organizations. Participants will also be asked to provide recommendations for improving healthcare to Native Americans at UNM Hospitals. Information will be available on healthcare services and resources, including financial assistance to cover healthcare costs.

The forum will be held at the Native American Community Academy Auditorium 1100 Cardenas S.E. (co-located w/Wilson Middle School) from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Refreshments will be provided and Spanish interpretation will be available.
