The focus of the effort was threefold: Provide Spanish translations for health education resources published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC,) The Wold Health Organization (WHO,) and LEARN MORE
Introducing SEAHEC's Karen Halverson Scholars, Class of 2020. Congratulations to Jacqueline Larson, Yareli Carolina Sánchez Vega, and Diana Garcia, from Nogales High School, and Ralph Emmanuel B. Rosales from Ajo High School.
"It is a great satisfaction to participate in the Ventanilla de Salud program. Providing health resources is one of the pillars of my profession (nursing). I am very grateful to be able to do it in this program in a country different from mine. I loved being able to travel to communities that I did not know, living with people from different cultures and being able to contribute to that important part of life that is health."
The Winchester Heights Community Center hosted a community workshop on lead safety on March 4th, 2020. There were 16 participants at the workshop, who received the results of a recent water quality study conducted by SEAHEC and learned about lead exposure safety. Later, community health workers visited 26 homes providing lead safety information to 104 adults and children.
