Health issues transcend geographic boundaries. Dealing with disease and promoting healthy living in the border region requires line-crossing partnerships. SEAHEC works to enhance the well-being of people living in Southeastern Arizona’s US-Mexico border region by collaborating with communities to enhance prevention and care. We do this through Border Binational Health Initiatives and cross-border networking.
