Why It's Time

Unhealthy has become our new normal.

More than two-thirds of Texas adults and one-third of Texas children are overweight or obese. The situation has led to epidemics of preventable chronic diseases that erode our quality of life while piling on billions in associated healthcare costs. The worsening health crisis is one that we cannot afford and have limited time to fix. Yet, the causes are so complex and widespread that no single intervention will reverse it.

At It’s Time Texas, we recognize that solving the health crisis requires a collaborative, multilayered approach that addresses the individual, cultural, organizational, community and policy factors that influence the extent to which people have access and opportunities to lead healthier lives.

The good news is that there is a growing movement of people, organizations, and institutions committed to creating a culture of health in the Lone Star State. We exist to champion that movement. By uniting and mobilizing our collective efforts, we can create a thriving future for our families, our communities, and our state.
