This report was supported by Presbyterian Healthcare Services through Cooperative Agreement Number 5 NU58DP006604-04-00 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Leigh Caswell, Principal Investigator. This is a Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) award supplement. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC or the US Department of Health and Human Services. We would like to recognize the time and effort made by community members and listening session facilitators First Choice Community Healthcare, Native Women Lead, Native Health Initiative, Vizionz-Sankofa, and Earth Care International. We would also like to thank Nancy Pope, Manager of Operations and Strategic Initiatives for Presbyterian Community Health and REACH Program Manager, and Anna Rutins REACH COVID/Flu Program Manager for Presbyterian Community Health for their efforts to ensure that voices from New Mexico's diverse communities were heard.

We would also like to honor the participants who gave of their time and energy to help us learn about community concerns. These conversations occurred during difficult times and some topics were difficult not only because of the loss that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic but also the contentious nature of the topic. Because of their willingness to participate, we can better understand community perspectives with the aim of improving services and access.

This report was produced by the University of New Mexico Prevention Research Center. Please contact Theresa H. Cruz at if you have questions about this report.
