SBHC of the Month
NMASBHC visits Gadsden High SBHC with Representative Bill Gomez
Representative Bill Gomez (district 34); Gustavo Gutierrez, MSN, RN, CPNP-PC; Areli Guajardo LMSW; Rebecca Torres, medical records; Mayela Angel, medical assistant.  
A Note from the Executive Director
NMASBHC is in planning and transition mode. I know that those of you working directly in an SBHC are probably more focused on taking a breath after the end of the school year. And you SO deserve it. However, we are already working on how to improve every aspect of school-based health for next school year! From our plans to advocate passionately for legislative support for expanded SBHC funding to collaborating with SBHC sponsors to seek new medical entity involvement, we are working hard for you. Please let us know if you have any new ideas about how we can serve you in the 2018-19 school year (or over the summer). In the meantime, we are wishing you all a safe and restful summer!

Immediately following the documentary screening, a panel discussion will take place including several local healthcare providers and an HPV-related cancer survivor.
