As we approach the end of summer, we wanted to share just a sample of what we've been doing lately around the state.
Last weekend, our executive director, Mary Feldblum, headed down to Las Cruces for an intensive weekend of well-attended workshops—a bill workshop (with a bonus messaging component) on Saturday, and a fiscal analysis workshop on Sunday.
More workshops are being planned, with the next one scheduled for Santa Fe in September. Let us know if you are interested!
While Mary was in Las Cruces, Tyler Taylor, a recently retired primary care physician who sits on the Health Security board, and Dana Millen, our education and outreach coordinator, set up shop at the Valencia County Fair in Belen.
They had good conversations with fairgoers, and some new folks signed up for our Health Security email alerts. Welcome!
Tyler and other volunteers will be tabling at similar events around the state. We need to keep educating New Mexicans about the Health Security Plan!
In the past few months, we've also monitored interim legislative committee meetings, been in touch with the Legislative Finance Committee staff (who are hard at work finishing up the "request for proposals" to undertake the fiscal analysis of the Health Security Plan), and communicated with the governor's office and legislators. Lots to do!
