Vecinos translates as neighbors, which is how El Rio Community Health Center was formed in 1970. It was through the cooperation and support of Tucson neighbors and several organizations that a true neighborhood, community, consumer-based health center was established downtown.
The Vecinos is a group of young professionals with a collective goal to help make a difference in our Tucson community. As stewards of this group, members will work together to raise money and network with amazing young men and women to benefit El Rio and the Tucson Community.
