Halliburton’s support of $50,000 will help El Centro improve women’s health outcomes for uninsured and underserved Hispanic women.  El Centro will utilize grant funds to integrate behavioral health services into its women’s health services so that behavioral health issues, such as depression and anxiety in prenatal and postpartum women, can be addressed at the time of the primary care visit.
