Ads highlight the many factors that contribute to being healthy,
such as your education and where you live
Con Alma Health Foundation today launched a new public service announcement (PSA) campaign that highlights the many factors that contribute to being healthy. The PSAs each feature four nonprofit organizations that have received Con Alma Health Foundation grants. They are East Central Ministries in Albuquerque, New Mexico State University (NMSU) Grants Campus – Pathways to Nursing program, Coming Home Connect in Santa Fe and the Alamo Navajo School Board.
“Your opportunity for health starts long before you need medical care. Health begins where you live, work, and learn,” said Dolores E. Roybal, executive director of Con Alma Health Foundation. “All New Mexicans should have the opportunity to make choices that allow them to live a long, healthy life, regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.”
The PSAs feature real people who participate in community programs in New Mexico that impact people’s health.
- At East Central Ministries, people living in an underserved immigrant neighborhood in Southeast Albuquerque joined together to manage and control a community health center which focuses on education and prevention.
- The NMSU Grants Campus is addressing the critical nursing shortage by establishing a nursing career pathway for high school juniors.
- Coming Home Connection in Santa Fe trains, places and coordinates volunteers to provide free in-home care.
- The Alamo Navajo School Board Wellness Center promotes healthy choices and activities in a community-run center.
The PSAs, sponsored and produced by Comcast, will air on Comcast channels throughout the state and on Comcast.net.
