Binational Policy Forum 2011 (Archive)
The 11th Annual Binational Health Week Inaugural Event and the Binational Policy Forum on Migration and Global Health took place in San Antonio, Texas on October 3rd and 4th. Over 300 participants came together to discuss the challenges facing migrant communities and to explore unique opportunities to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of this population.
