CAHF “Roadmap for Health Equity” Presented at 2012 GIH Meeting

Mar 13, 2012

This summary of Con Alma Health Foundation’s strategies for promoting health equity in New Mexico was presented by Executive Director Dolores Roybal at the 2012 Grantmakers in Health national conference in Baltimore, MD March 6th-9th.  You can download the summary document here. It shares how one small foundation can make a difference, and how what we have learned can be applied to further improve the health of New Mexicans and the nation consistent with the Healthy People 2020 goals. Lessons learned, although specific to New Mexico, can be generalized to other locations.

“CAHF is one example of health equity in action and how philanthropy can help move the nation’s health agenda forward. Assets go beyond the dollars used for grantmaking. We also serve as a convener and a catalyst for positive, systemic change. Health equity is not simply a strategy; it is a requirement in order to improve health in our state and nation.”
