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. Even more are harmed by illness from smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. Community Health Charities New Mexico is working to share resources on tobacco control and prevention. Read More.
Back to School: Lunchbox Makeover for Kids & Adults

Healthy LunchboxWe've all been there. The morning rush to get out the door on time kicks in and you are hastily making lunch for work or school. It's just easier to reach for convenient pre-packaged snack foods instead of healthier options that need to be individually portioned. Commercial lunch packs and frozen meals are popular because of their ease and lack of prep time, but let's face it - nutrition and flavor are not guaranteed. This fall, give your lunchbox a makeover by packing it full of nutritious and flavorful food.

In 1993, my parents and I endured a horror that has been visited upon millions of families across the globe we watched helplessly as my brother Ron died of AIDS. He was only 32. It is hard to believe that over a decade passed, because all I have to do is close my eyes, and there he is my friendly, outgoing brother who grew up to charm every person who crossed his path, travel all over the world, and embrace the joys of life to the fullest. I wish you could have known my brother.
