A Note From the Healthier Texas Leadership


Nearly two-thirds of all deaths in Texas are due to chronic disease. Most chronic diseases share three risk factors: tobacco use, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity. These risk factors contribute significantly to increased rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, breathing problems, lung disease, and some cancers.

Obesity alone will cost Texas employers a minimum of $9.5 billion dollars this year and, if current trends continue, could cost Texas employers as much as $32 billion a year by 2030.

We have a tremendous opportunity to turn the tide toward better health in Texas, but we must move quickly and work collaboratively. This is why our two organizations have joined together to create Healthier Texas – a unique public-private initiative designed to rapidly reduce the burden of preventable chronic disease in the Lone Star State. The Healthier Texas Summit represents our initiative’s first major project and an important step forward in the movement for a healthier state.

The Healthier Texas Summit will empower leaders from diverse sectors across the state with the latest science and proven approaches to improve health where Texans live, learn, and work. Whether we will be reconnecting or meeting for the first time, we look forward to seeing you in November as we all work together to improve the health of our great state.
