Healthy Living Matters

More than 50 public health-minded organizations in Houston and Harris County joined together to launch Healthy Living Matters (HLM), an outreach effort to fight the childhood obesity epidemic in their area. HLM created a video infographic to educate Texans about the real cost of childhood obesity. Twenty-one percent of Harris County children — almost a quarter of a million kids — are obese. The video points out that for the first time, our children’s generation will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. One in three kids born in 2000 will develop diabetes.

Watch the video for more information.
