The UNM Health Sciences Center has taken many steps to work towards the realization of Vision 2020. Many of these are outlined below.
Two Symposiums have been held to bring community partners to meet with HSC leadership, faculty, and staff and to share recommendations on how to partner to improve health and health equity in their communities. To find out more about the Vision 2020 Symposiums and recommendations, please visit this page.
One of the major recommendations to the HSC was that we needed to go out into the community and hear first hand what the priorities, strengths, and needs are around the state. To read more about these visits, please read this Vision 2020 e-newsletter. Additional trips are being planned for the spring of 2012 to the NW and SE part of the state. The requests from community partners to the leadership of the HSC are being tracked to ensure follow-up is completed.
We have started out with a large list of health indicators and outcomes that are being tracked across the nation. However, we will need to focus our efforts and to do so we will do the following.
If you would like more information about these efforts or would like to become involved in any way, please contact Leigh Caswell, Program Manager for Vision 2020 at firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 272-5377. There are multiple ways to participate depending on your availability and level of interest.
