The Texas A&M Coastal Bend Health Education Center, located in Corpus Christi, Texas, serves as a key resource for the Coastal Bend, providing health education for medical professionals and the greater community. Established in 1999 through Senate Bill 590, the Coastal Bend Health Education Center is committed to improving the quality of health care in the Coastal Bend by advancing the knowledge and skills of health care professionals, students and the community through partnerships in education, research, and technology.

The center provides continuing education opportunities for health professionals, supports programs designed to foster recruitment into health-related professions, aids individuals in meeting current health care needs related to diabetes and medication assistance and participates in community outreach efforts throughout its 20-county service area.

A proud partner of Texas A&M Healthy South Texas, the Coastal Bend Health Education Center engages families, promotes healthy behavior change and enhances education to improve the quality of medical care and health outcomes. As part of this initiative, our programs have expanded beyond the Coastal Bend to serve Healthy South Texas's 27-county region. As a result, people throughout South Texas will enjoy the benefits of improved health now, and for generations to come.
