Medical and Dental Care@100%: Innovation 2
Ensuring Full Support
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project: Medical and Dental Care.2.1
Project 1: The “who’s working on accessible health care?” project
While state lawmakers work to fund various forms of health care supports, often local communities are home to various programs and activist groups that also work on the issue. Maybe it’s a nonprofit that operates a free clinic, or a private charity that helps out with children’s dental emergencies, or a group that lobbies for school-based or universal health care. Your mission here is to make an inventory of those organizations and figure out what they’re doing and who the champions are. Do your assessment of all current medical and dental care programs to know the quality and quantity of affordable services.
