What is Healthy South Texas?
Healthy South Texas is a comprehensive effort by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas A&M University Health Science Center to reduce preventable diseases and their consequences in South Texas.
Working in 27 southernmost counties of our state, Healthy South Texas aims to improve both health education and health outcomes. The effort will educate community members on healthy food preparation; encourage regular physical activity; and provide resources for preventing diabetes, asthma, and infectious disease. We will engage families and work with community partners such as hospitals and clinics.
As a result of our work, our state will see:
- a higher quality of life for county residents;
- fewer new cases of diabetes, asthma, and infectious diseases; and
- fewer hospitalizations, health complications, and emergency room visits
