Their Heart is to Serve: Compassionate Conversations about Healthcare in Northern New Mexico.

Felicity Fonseca
November 25, 2020

"Quiere mas, juzga menos; love more, judge less" is how Gilberto Romero sums up his work in public health in Northern New Mexico over the last 30 years.  He, together with 18 other individuals, recorded their experiences as public and community health workers, mothers, grandmothers, health care professionals, doulas, and activists in the series "Their Heart is to Serve: Compassionate Conversations about Healthcare in Northern New Mexico."  The series is produced by Embudo Valley Library, with partners StoryCorps, Barrios Unidos, and Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area, and will debut on Thursday December 10, 2020, via a zoom listening event.  The interviews capture how a broad spectrum of community members work to improve public, community, and individual health, in both their personal and professional lives.  The interviews feature heartfelt, honest, and love-filled first-person accounts of coping with addition and supporting recovery in their own families, and how public health workers and health care providers have been able to improve health care access and public health in front line service to rural communities.  Interviewees hold out their hopes and visions for structural change in healthcare, witness what has made a difference in their communities, and describe what true community health is.

Please join us on zoom to hear community members speak about healthcare -- stories both personal and professional.
