New Mexico Healthcare Present and Future Perspectives

This year's 16th annual Dorothy Turner Memorial seminar, on August 16, will discuss how New Mexicans can best use health care resources.

The seminar is open to interested individuals as well as professionals who want to learn more on how to better coordinate health care, how an individual can best achieve good health care and how the present health care system impacts individuals, providers and administrators.

Speakers, from the University of New Mexico and other Albuquerque medical centers, will present their current perspective of New Mexico health care and what they envision for the next three years.  

The annual seminars began in 1987 to honor registered nurse Dorothy Turner who died of breast cancer in 1985. Her husband Dr. Robert Turner established the seminar and with the Tres Rios Area of the Disciples of Christ Christian Church, and initially held at the present Black River Center for Learning in Carlsbad, NM.

Now the seminars are held at the Monte Vista Church on 3501 Campus Blvd., SE Albuquerque. Registration fee for the seminar is $40. Continuing education credit can be earned at an additional $10 processing fee. For more information and registration visit or mail checks and registration t
