The 2013 legislative session passed House Memorial 48- Create NM Liver Transplantation Institute. HM 48 designated the NM Department of Health (DOH) and University of New Mexico Hospitals (UNMH) to conduct a feasibility study of a liver transplant center in New Mexico.
The NMDOH developed conclusions and recommendations about the potential association of pesticide exposure and Parkinson’s disease (PD) based on the literature assessed. Two main categories were analyzed: studies without genetic interactions and studies with genetic interactions.
Senate Memorial 20 (SM20), introduced by Senator William Soules (D-Dona Ana) during the 2013 legislative session, requests the Department of Health (DOH) to establish a subcommittee of the Advisory Council on Quality (ACQ) to identify strategies on several topics.
