Con Alma Health Foundation is releasing a new report assessing how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been implemented in New Mexico. This comprehensive study focuses on ACA measures intended to increase health equity, in which everyone has an equal chance at living a healthy life regardless of a person’s ethnicity, income, or zip code.
The foundation partnered with the University of New Mexico’s College of Population Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy at the University of New Mexico to conduct the study, and the New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils to ensure local communities were represented. This study and report was made possible by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
