The New Mexico Perinatal Collaborative is a nonprofit organization created by stakeholders with the objective of improving the healthcare of women and children in New Mexico. We encourage best practice methods in the care of women and children. We work to share those best practices with healthcare facilities and providers throughout the state.
Currently, the NMPC is funded through a one-time appropriation to the NM Department of Health to support our work, and other project-focused grants. We have received limited project-specific and operational funds from groups including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and March of Dimes. We rely on in-kind donations of time from board members, team leads, and other volunteers. We receive substantial in-kind support from Project ECHO in the form of a dedicated Operations Specialist to run our Improving Perinatal Health ECHO Program.
Our Board of Directors works to promote mission and vision of the NMPC by guiding the work of the Executive Director and staff, serving as a good steward of our financial and human resources, and engaging their personal and professional networks to support and participate in our initiatives. Board members represent a multidisciplinary array of healthcare providers, public health professionals, advocates, community leaders and researchers. We seek to have broad representation of our New Mexico communities on our Board. Please consider sharing your experience and expertise as a board member! We post notice of Board elections on our website. Please contact us if you have questions or would like more information.
We encourage everyone including public officials, healthcare providers, community members, and advocates to get involved! No matter your field of interest, whether it be wanting to join a committee or wanting to simply spread the word of what we do, we invite you to contact us to discuss more! Contact Us HERE
