SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - 211 San Diego is partnering with the Consulate General of Mexico for this year's Binational Health Week.

211 and 211.com will provide information on how to prevent illnesses and where people who are sick can get treatment.

Organizers say the point is to promote good health within the Hispanic community.

"To call 211, speak to a live person 24 hours a day to find out the events and the services that are available to the public," 211 San Diego CEO John Ohanian said.

Binational Health Week actually lasts through the month of October. It includes 86 events to be held in different locations throughout San Diego County.
