Community of Bilingual English Spanish Speakers Exploring Health and Sciences (CBESS) is an interdisciplinary project funded to the University of Nevada, Reno by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). As a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program, the first in the state of Nevada, CBESS aims to increase the linguistic diversity of healthcare professionals in Northern Nevada. The program supports bilingual English-Spanish students who are interested in pursuing career paths in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM)-healthcare fields such as biomedical, behavioral, and clinical professions.
