The Bernalillo County Community Health Council is still seeking a Program Specialist to work on prevention efforts within our Opioid Accountability Initiative (see next column for description of the initiative). Preference is for a Certified Prevention Specialist.
We all want to be healthy, but that can be hard if the right supports are not in place. For example, it can be difficult to eat healthy when it is too expensive to buy fresh and local fruits and vegetables. They may not be sold in one’s neighborhood, or they are not always available in our schools. It can be difficult to be physically active when places like streets, sidewalks and parks are not easy, safe, and enjoyable to use. And it can be difficult to manage a chronic disease, like diabetes, when you are not connected to a system that helps you to do so.
Healthy Here is an initiative of the Bernalillo County Community Health Council. It is funded in part through the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s REACH (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health) award, and is managed by Presbyterian Healthcare Services.
