Tobacco disparities are a high priority that need attention. Addiction to tobacco and exposure to secondhand smoke are serious problems in our community.

But did you know that about 24% of African American adults in New Mexico smoke cigarettes, compared to only 19% of the overall population? Nearly 700 Black/African American people in New Mexico die each generation (20 years) as a direct result of cigarette smoking.

Controlling Your Diabetes at Work

Employee with DiabetesChances are, you know someone with diabetes, you have diabetes or you are at risk for diabetes. Diabetes affects nearly 30 million American adults and children. Another 86 million have prediabetes, which means they are at risk of developing the disease. There is no cure for diabetes, but you can manage it successfully - or prevent it altogether. If you already have diabetes, there are many resources to help you thrive at work and live a longer, healthier life.

I’d been married for over 20 years, our son was in his first year of college, I was happy in my job and my husband was looking forward to retirement. We were all healthy, tried to exercise, eat right and live an active life.
