The LEAN Coalition's mission is to inform and increase awareness among Rusk County citizens concerning physical activity, nutrition choices, and other behaviors for optimum health.
Our intention is to lead our community in making wise, informed choices for a healthier life by partnering with Texas Department of State Health Services, Rusk County Health Department and Texas AgriLife in conducting nutritional and physical activity programs such as Step Up and Scale Down, Wisdom Power Control, Si Yo Puedo Controlar mi Diabetes, Learn Grow Eat & Go! and Walk Across Texas.
LEAN uses these programs to ensure that minority and disadvantaged populations are not left behind. LEAN intends on leading the whole community in making wise, informed choices for a healthier life.
Rusk County has been recognized by Texas AgriLife with National and Southern Regional Awards for both the Step Up Scale Down and the Si Yo Puedo Controlar mi Diabetes programs. To get involved, visit their Facebook page.
