Keynote Panel: A Discussion on Border and Migrant Health

Panel members: Dr. Mabel Crescioni, Senator Heather Carter, Dr. Sydney Pettygrove

Learn more about the Keynote Panel Members

Border health has wide-ranging implications that impact local, national, and global communities. The Southern Arizona international border region no longer exists in isolation and highly mobile populations present unique needs and challenges to the region. Improving health outcomes along this region requires specialized tools and strategic partnerships that can leverage existing resources within border communities while promoting binational collaboration. We encourage all interested parties to join us and our distinguished panel members as we discuss the roles individuals, groups, and agencies may play in recent, as well as future border health issues.
