For more than 30 years, the Social & Health Research Center (SAHRC) has fostered partnerships with federal and state agencies, universities, health care providers, nonprofit organizations, and corporations to design, innovate, fund, and implement evidence-based health programs to prevent and manage obesity and associated chronic diseases.
Immediate goals for the Social and Health Research Center are the continued expansion of Bienestar/NEEMA and BAHLP into more regions of the US and Mexico, market behavioral-based modalities to prevent chronic disease, and to develop a diverse coalition of global, national, and local partners to advance the mission of the SAHRC globally
Funding provided by our Strategic Partners allow the SAHRC to develop new evidence-based health programs for both children and adults, create advanced evaluation tools for obesity research, and integrate digital animation technologies to improve the engagement and long-term viability of SAHRC curriculums.
