Please join us for the DPBC special online presentation outlining the inequities in health care in New Mexico for African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanics/Latinx populations.

While these disparities are historic, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the struggle for people of color in accessing health care in our state. 

Learn about the barriers and efforts to address this crisis.
