The Center for Community-Based and Applied Health Research (CCBAHR) aims to gather diverse research faculty at UTSA with community partners to address health issues that impact our communities. Partners include health care agencies, community-based organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, and any anyone else with an interest in applied health research. The joint effort between researchers and community partners will increase knowledge, improve community capacity and identify ways to improve health, prevent disease and provide resources for our community.
