“Creating a Future Workforce that Reflects Our Community!”

New Mexico’s history has contributed to its unique demographic and cultural character. It is one of only six majority-minority states, with the nation’s highest percentage of Hispanic and Latino Americans and the second-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska. New Mexico is home to one–third of the Navajo Nation, 19 federally recognized Pueblo communities, and three federally recognized Apache tribes.The New Mexican flag, which is among the most recognizable in the U.S., reflects the state’s eclectic origins, featuring the ancient sun symbol of the Zia, a Puebloan tribe, with the scarlet and gold coloration of the Spanish flag. The confluence of indigenous, Hispanic (Spanish and Mexican), and American influences is also evident in New Mexico’s unique cuisine, music genre, and architectural styles.

The recently released “America’s Health Rankings 2022 Annual Report” uncovered several health strengths and challenges in New Mexico. New Mexico is ranked 40th in the country for overall health – a decline from a ranking of 37 in 20191 – according to America’s Health Rankings 2022 Annual Report.

-High supply of mental health providers
-Low levels of air pollution
-36% decrease in food insecurity from 17.9% to 11.5% of households between 2015 and 2017, as well as 2019 and 2021
