- Advocating for prevention policies and programs;
- Facilitating collaboration among agencies and organizations working to prevent and/or manage chronic disease;
- Supporting initiatives to understand, identify, and address social determinants that impact chronic disease.
*As identified by the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.
The latest iteration of the New Mexico Shared Strategic Plan (NMSSP) for Prevention and Control of Chronic Disease is here!
