The Center is developing a series of user-friendly materials that can be used to raise awareness of child health risk factors in order to develop new programs and actions, and to build on current initiatives in Texas. The Healthy Children, Healthy State report series and the accompanying toolkit include:
- Status highlights of child health in Texas, with a focus on health disparities (i.e. obesity, nutrition, screen-time, etc.); and
- Toolkits to accompany the reports that are intended for parents, schools, and public health audiences to use to advocate for child health in relation to local, school, and statewide policy.
The Center is involved in various steering committees that are involved in legislative work such as the Partnership for a Healthy Texas, Live Smart Texas, the Texas Public Health Coalition, and the Mayor's Health & Fitness Council.
