Call to Action: Children at the Center Project Wrap-Up Event

Con Alma thanks the Call to Action: Children at the Center Project Team for their individual and collective contributions in making this project a success. We also thank the participants, presenters, and contributors for valuable engagement and insight towards a successful August 22nd convening. Special thanks to Lilly Irvin-Vitela, President and Executive Director at New Mexico First, for moderating and MC’ing the event. We look forward to our continued partnership with the New Mexico First team.

Although the grant ends soon, our work to advance health equity for children, families, and communities in New Mexico will continue.

 

Convening Objectives:

  • Inform the development of an actionable agenda regarding elements of health care reform critical to children and families in NM;
  • Increase stakeholders’ ability to work together and advocate for the health rights and needs of low-income and vulnerable populations, especially children and families in NM; and
  • Engage stakeholders in advancing policy and other strategies including strengthening the safety net to advance health equity in NM for children and families in NM.

New Mexico Children and 
Health Insurance Coverage

http://conalma.org/nm-children-and-insurance-maps/

The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that focus on improving quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. In New Mexico about 70 percent of children are of color, and almost a third of children live in poverty. Interactive maps are available that detail seven categories of children’s insurance coverage by county. These maps are a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about the insurance coverage of New Mexico’s children by such categories as race, place, gender and income.
