Health Security for New Mexico

Wednesday, May 15, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Center for Progress and Justice
1420 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe, NM

 The ongoing attempts by Republicans in Washington, D.C. to undo the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) make it imperative that New Mexicans act to secure their own health future. In 2019, the New Mexico Legislature took significant steps toward making the Health Security Act (HSA) a reality. The HSA includes provisions to assure that the majority of New Mexicans have excellent health coverage and care. 

Santa Fe County Democratic Party’s Platform & Resolutions Committee has assembled a distinguished panel to examine and explain the Health Security Act. Participants include:

  • Senator Carlos Cisneros (District 6), for many years the Senate sponsor of the Health Security Act;
  • Dr. Mary Feldblum, Executive Director of the Health Security for All New Mexicans Campaign; and
  • Tyler Taylor, M.D., advocate for health security for the medical community.

The panelists will discuss WHAT the HSA will do, WHY it is important for us to act now, WHO has been active in promoting the HSA, and HOW we can all help assure that things continue to move forward. Don’t miss this critical discussion on May 15, 6:00 p.m., at 1420 Cerrillos Road.
Local issues, local experts, local solutions—join us!!
