Binational Health Week 2014
Binational Health Week (BHW) is an international mobilization effort to promote health and well being amongst the Latino populations through a series of health promotion and education activities and events in October.
This year marks the 14th event internationally and Austin's 8th year to participate.

We would like to thank our generous Austin-area sponsors that made these efforts possible: Univision TV, Univision Radio, Superior Health, Amerigroup, The Austin Project, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Texas, LIVESTRONG, Mendez Family Resource Center, and United Healthcare.
