Genny Carrillo Zuniga, M.D., Sc.D.

Genny Carrillo-Zuniga, M.D., Sc.D., associate professor at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health McAllen campus, was recently awarded funding by the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC) to develop an environmental health information program between border communities in both Mexico and the U.S.

Carrillo will be working in collaboration with El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, A.C. in Mexico on a project titled “Planning Model for an Environmental and Health Texas/Mexico Border Information Exchange Program.” She will work with local, state, and national agencies to identify local environmental health hazard indicators that can have an impact in the bi-national communities, and work to bring together different local and state agencies in the border communities to openly communicate, collaborate, and exchange information related to an information exchange system that would be viable for both Mexico and the U.S.

Carrillo’s research interests include asthma, environmental health, border health risk assessment and management, and healthy homes and children.
