Health Rocks concert and Border Health Heroes Celebration being held on September 12, 2021 at the Living Coast Discovery Center?

The 1st annual Border Health Rocks event is benefiting Chula Vista’s Community Through Hope and their newest collaborative program: South Bay Street Medicine.

The 1st annual Border Health Rocks event is celebrating FIVE Border Health Rocks Stars who are being chosen for their leadership, courage during the pandemic and impact on the health of the San Diego-Mexico border.

Border Health Rocks is championing all aspects of border health including the health of people, animals, plants and the environment. This event is being held at the Living Coast Discovery Center in Chula Vista, whose mission is aligned with that of Border Health Rocks: a healthy border community and ecosystem.

What is street medicine?

Street Medicine is team based medical care brought to people who are living without
permanent shelter. Street Medicine prevents death and illness on the streets while bringing humanitarian care to the unhoused. Chula Vista and the South Bay have never had a Street Medicine Program. South Bay Street Medicine will bring a much needed and innovative new resource to the South Bay.

What is this fundraiser for?

All funds raised by Border Health Rocks will go to the Chula Vista non-profit Community Through Hope’s newest collaborative program: South Bay Street Medicine.
