Fostering Transborder Collaborations to Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Among Underserved Latino Families Living in the Southwest US-Mexico Border

This project is designed to establish strategic transborder collaborations between U.S. and Mexican researchers in order to develop research initiatives that aim to reduce health disparities among Latino families living in the Southwest US-Mexico border. The project involves researches from ASU's School of Nutrition and Health Promotions and researchers from the Centro de Investigación en Alimentación y Desarrollo, A.C. The Focus of this collaboration is to identify resources, expertise and common areas of interest and community needs that will serve to develop effective community-based behavioral interventions to reduce risk of chronic disease among Latinos living in the Southwest US-Mexico border.
