Welcome to the New Mexico Health Equity Learning Center
The New Mexico Department of Health Office of Health Equity has hosted this website for many years to provide opportunities to learn more about cultural implications to health and will continue provide trainings and resources to that end. Health equity, as a topic, is much broader than just cross-cultural communication and there are many other facets of health equity in New Mexico that are important and benefit from have training opportunities. We are changing the name to reflect the move to broaden but maintain culture as a key health equity strategy. Please explore the links and resources throughout the site to help understand and address health equity not just through a cross-cultural lens, but across a spectrum of social determinants of health and other principles. This change will be reflected over the next year and we invite you to come back from time to time as new approaches and tools evolve.
Free continuing education credits will be available soon, but due to staff changes are currently not offered.
