Virtual Seminar Series Coordinates COVID-19 Response Along US-Mexico Border

May 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The new Virtual Seminar series brings together public health experts and leadership from both sides of the US-Mexico border to share information and mitigation efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to find opportunities for coordination and share resources.

The seminar series was organized collaboratively by Dr. Cecilia Rosales, Professor & Chair, Division of Public Health Practice & Translational Research, Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona (MEZCOPH) and Maria Gudelia Rangel, PhD, Professor, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte and Adjunct Professor, Public Health Practice & Translational Research, MEZCOPH. Dr. Rosales’ longstanding relationships with healthcare providers and organizations on both sides of the border gave her a unique perspective on the value of the seminar partnership during this international health crisis.
