Strategic Planning Advisory Workgroup

A group of science educators, seeking to improve pest control in affordable housing by teaching everyone who works, lives, and plays in housing how to use integrated pest management.

The New Mexico Strategic planning advisory workgroup was established to strategically address healthy home priorities in the state. The group works to develop a plan to increase statewide capacity to holistically approach health outcomes associated with housing. This advisory workgroup aims to increase primary prevention capacity to address lead and asthma issues, as well as mold and radon concerns.

Goal

Reduce or eliminate housing-related hazards to promote housing that is healthy, safe, affordable, and accessible.

Focus

Asthma, lead, mold and radon.
