Community Snapshot: In August, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico held the Fiesta de Salud para Familias community health fair at New Mexico Family Services in Sunland Park. The goal of the event was to address the health care needs of families in rural southern New Mexico by providing tools and resources to help them access health care. Approximately 200 people attended the event, which featured health screenings, community resource information, family-friendly activities and Blue BearSM, BCBSNM’s health and wellness ambassador. More than 16 community organizations provided health information and medical screenings to community members during the event. BCBSNM’s Care Van program worked with Southern New Mexico Diabetes Outreach and the Doña Ana Community College Dental Hygiene Program to administer diabetes tests and dental screenings.
