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. The Bernalillo County Community Health Council serves as a resource and convener for those organizations, institutions and individuals with a passion for improving the health of all Bernalillo County residents. 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.
