The NMPHA Annual Health Policy Legislative Forum provides a unique opportunity for organizations and individuals working to improve community health to come together, learn, discuss timely issues, and share their legislative proposals for the upcoming legislative session. Organizations are given a chance to make brief statements about their legislative proposals, and a booklet containing summary information about their proposals is distributed widely. Participants can identify allies and possible collaborators, as well as request support from NMPHA and other participating organizations.

This year's keynote speakers include: Carolyn Miller , Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Lisa Cacari-Stone, UNM TREE Center Director, and Regis Pecos, Leadership Institute at Santa Fe Indian School.
