Black Health New Mexico
BHNM is a resource for African-Americans and Black people in New Mexico, dedicated to providing greater access to information from the New Mexico Department of Health, local organizations, and local and national health professionals. It is also a resource for people and organizations working to improve community health through collaborative grassroots efforts. We work to address the high health disparity rates of Black/African-American infant and maternal mortality, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease through innovative and collaborative programming. We center the voices, leadership, experience and expertise of black women and people in the design and implementation of policy and practice to reduce health inequities and change structures and mentalities that have allowed racism to dominate public health for so long.
