IT’S TIME TEXAS empowers Texans to lead healthier lives and build healthier communities.
Unhealthy has become the new normal. Chronic diseases associated with unhealthy lifestyles and communities have reached epidemic proportions in the U.S. and the related costs threaten to bankrupt our country and way of life.
IT’S TIME to make healthy easier.
We’ve created a variety of tools, resources, initiatives, and events to help you and your friends, family, and community live healthier. From the state’s premiere healthy communities conference and a one-of-its-kind statewide health competition, to free mobile apps and personalized health planning, we’ve got you covered!
This year’s Community Challenge started January 7th and ended March 3rd. We’re currently reviewing community uploads and activities and will announce this year’s winners on our Facebook page, Monday, March 11th.
Our free Choose Healthier Mobile App, created in collaboration with Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, is the easiest way to both share and promote healthy activities and events near you! Download the app for your phone or tablet today!
