Border Health Breakfast Hour

SWIHDR invites faculty from across campus to share their expertise and ideas to address health disparities in the U.S.-Mexico border region.

Southwest Institute for Health Disparities Research

Dr. Jill McDonald, Director


The Southwest Institute for Health Disparities Research (SWIHDR) is committed to research, training and outreach activities that promote health and reduce disparities in the US-Mexico border region. Morbidity and mortality from communicable and non-communicable diseases, injuries and other conditions take an unfair toll on US and Mexican communities along the border and knowledge of how to address these disparities is lacking.  Using a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to health disparities, working with partners on both sides of the border, and capitalizing on NMSU deep community connections and research strengths.  SWIHDR is increasing our understanding of health disparities and the inequities that drive them.
