Excellence in Health Equity

UNM HSC providers believe everyone deserves access to resources and opportunities that support health and well-being. We work with our partners to understand and eliminate inequities in care and tackle the social determinants of health—so all New Mexicans can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential and live their healthiest life.

Health Equity in Action

Long-term structural inequities have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic placing additional hardship and burdens on communities of color and rural and under-resourced populations in New Mexico. More than ever, we need center our attention on the community voice and build collaborative strategic actions across multi-sectoral partners to achieve health equity with and for all people of New Mexico.

Douglas Ziedonis, MD, MPH

As the leader of this mission, I could not be prouder of the exceptional work being done to improve health outcomes, inspire learners and support our communities.

We are committed to increasing equity and diversity among health care professionals and our learners as well as bolstering our research, education and clinical missions.
