As the state’s largest private foundation dedicated solely to health, we understand how race, ethnicity, income, and zip code can affect a person’s health. Supporting culturally diverse populations is one of our priorities in advocating for a healthy New Mexico. Through grants and initiatives, Con Alma is focused on achieving health equity so all people have an equal chance at living a healthy life.

Our work in promoting health for all in New Mexico is strengthened by our joining the growing number of state and local organizations as well as individuals, state senators, and representatives in signing the New Mexico Health Equity Working Group’s anti-racism pledge. We have supported and participated in the New Mexico Health Equity Working Group’s Anti-Racism Day since its inception in 2009.

Please join us Tuesday, January 23rd for all or part of the day.
