About Us

The Social and Health Research Center (or SAHRC) was founded and established by Dr. Roberto Treviño in 1991. It was incorporated as a non-profit organization with 501 (c) (3) in 1993.

Today, after more than 20 years in operation, our not-for-profit still operates with one goal in mind: to detect and reduce diabetes risk factors and obesity in children through the implementation of the Bienestar/NEEMA-coordinated school health programs. Our organization has received multiple grants to evaluate the programs in elementary and middle schools thanks to our strong history of developing evidence-based and research-based programs.

Our research identifies a link between diabetes and overweight status, low educational attainment, and low socioeconomic status. As a result of these findings, we're able to create these programs that have been shown to significantly decrease obesity rates, waist circumference, body mass index (BMI), blood glucose, and insulin levels in children. You can trust our Bienestar/NEEMA program, as it is approved by the Texas Education Agency.
