Con Alma's COVID-19 Response

In light of the evolving public health emergency due to COVID-19, Con Alma Health Foundation continues to take a number of steps in an attempt to minimize exposure and slow the projected spread of infection. Until further notice, Con Alma has suspended in-person meetings at the Con Alma office. In the interim, staff are working remotely and can be reached via email or other means as arranged.

We continue to encourage our partners and friends to follow recommendations from the CDC’s website and the New Mexico Department of Health’s website and other health officials regarding social distancing and other public health advisories, including information on managing anxiety and stress.

 

VACCINE ROLLOUT & COMMUNITY REBUILD

Our current COVID-19 related work involves an ongoing partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and local partners on a two year grant to help ensure an equitable vaccine rollout and community rebuild effort.
