KUNM Call In Show Thu. 2/20 8a:  What is public health?  Maybe the term makes you think of vaccinations or controlling and preventing diseases like diabetes and influenza.  But the field is much larger than that.  

Call 277-5866 in Albuquerque or toll-free 1-877-899-5866.

KUNM's Public Health New Mexico project is exploring a wide range of public health issues in New Mexico, especially the impact of policy on people. We are proud to launch the project website today,

We'll explore the many facets of public health this week on the KUNM Call In Show.  What do you think of when you hear the term "public health"? What public health issues fly under the radar and need exposure or discussion? 

We'd like to hear from you! Email, post your comments online, or call in live during the show.
