Behavioral and Subjective Health Changes in US and Mexico Border Residing Participants in Two Promotora-led Chronic Disease Prevention Interventions

prevention programs serving Mexico-born residents of the
U.S-Mexico border region: one in a rural Arizona community
and one in an urban community in Sonora, Mexico. Discusses
challenges related to healthy diet, physical activity, and
social support as risk factors for obesity and diabetes.
