RE:BORDER CONFERENCE (2021)
RE:BORDER 2021 is the third annual conference that explores key regional issues and innovative solutions. The two-day conference will be hosted by San Diego State University and CETYS Universidad, in collaboration with our binational partners. This year’s theme is “A Nuestra Salud: Confronting Public Health and Mental Health Challenges and Solutions in Our Transborder Region.” Given that COVID-19 safety restrictions may affect an in-person conference format, we are preparing for a virtual, bilingual model at this time. We may add a complementary in-person format if we are able to do so.
