$3 million grant targets gaps in health care – The Santa Fe New Mexican“Ultimately, the goal is to explore creating what we call a Health Equity Institute at the end of the three years,” he said. “What are now diverse efforts around the state, we hope to consolidate into a coordinated strategy and to create a sustainable piece of infrastructure here in New Mexico.”

The Kellogg Foundation has had New Mexico in mind for this project for some time, Byrnes said, and approached the foundation to ask for its help.

In the first year of the project, four or five communities will be targeted, and the foundation hopes to expand the number in future years.
