Imagine a healthy Bernalillo County, where everyone has the ability to meet his or her full potential.
This vision is shared by many within the community.

By setting priorities and bringing people together to work toward a shared plan of action, the Health Council provides support to those responsible for creating the conditions needed for health in the neighborhoods where we live, work, learn and play.
