Gov. to seek $1.5M for rural health care

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Gov. Susana Martinez said Tuesday that she will seek approval for a $1.5 million appropriation that would expand loan repayment programs for New Mexico nursing students and health care workers who commit to practicing in rural areas.

In addition, the governor proposed increasing the number of slots in a dental program that allows students to study out of state.

The proposals, if approved by the Legislature, would lead to as many as 720 health care professionals being added to clinics and hospitals in the state’s less-populated areas, according to the Governor’s Office.
