2019 President's Message
NMEHA’s history is broad and deep. Our objectives are clear: to excel in providing training and certificate opportunities, be a strong advocate for public health and environmental health policies, provide networking opportunities, and lead in the field of environmental health. Our focus remains strong and our commitment to improve environmental health is paramount. It is my deep desire to focus our actions in line with the national environmental health topics of food safety, air quality, water quality, healthy homes, preparedness, climate change, vector and pests, and tracking and informatics. We need your help!
NMEHA’s standing committees are looking for your participation to achieve our goals and objectives. The Education Committee seeks to increase environmental health educational opportunities. The Membership and Public Relations Committee is committed to grow and needs your input, thoughts, and participation. The Professional Advancement Committee desires your involvement to bring innovative approaches to enhance our environmental health professional. The Awards and Scholarship Committee identifies and administers the awards program and you can help achieve that. The IT/Internet Committee is focused on improving communications with our professionals. Let us know how you can help participate to achieve our mutual goals. You are NMEHA!
NMEHA is exemplified through our past President, Cecelia Garcia, past Board, and recent awards recipients. I thank all of you who have worked hard to improve NMEHA.
I look forward to serving with you to bolster our commitment to New Mexico’s environmental professionals.
