Extension for Health in New Mexico

We hope you can join us for this month’s exciting webinar: Extension for Health in New Mexico.

The Cooperative Extension’s National Framework for Health and Wellness focuses on improving the health of all Americans.  An important element of executing this framework includes Cooperative Extension’s collaborating with partners in different sectors, including academic health centers and healthcare systems.
