You Can Honor an Obesity Fighter

If you know someone making a difference in decreasing obesity in Texas, consider nominating him or her for the Texas Health Champion Award. July 2 is the deadline for nominations.

The award is presented as part of the annual Texas Obesity Awareness Week to a community, an organization, or an individual who has mobilized community efforts to prevent and reduce obesity and promote physical activity and nutritional health through research, practice, policy development, social marketing, behavioral interventions, or innovative partnerships.

Nominees may be individuals, organizations, or project teams from community organizations, educational agencies, non-profit organizations, or government offices. Self-nominations are welcome.

Texas Obesity Awareness Week is sponsored in part by Live Smart Texas and the Michael and Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at The University of Texas School of Public Health.
