During these unprecedented times, IT'S TIME TEXAS and The University of Texas System aim to develop high quality video-based meetings that are interactive, relevant and accessible. We are pleased to issue a rolling call for webinar proposals for the Healthier Texas Summit Series. The Healthier Texas Summit Series will have various types of sessions that spotlight innovative work focusing on community-level responses to support social factors that influence population and community health.

The web-based meetings will be hosted by It’s Time Texas and delivered through a formal webinar platform. Training and support for the development of these interactive online events will be available for speakers. Session formats will include keynote speakers, lectures, panels, workshops.

Texas is Best When Texans are Healthy

It's Time Texas

Every day at It’s Time Texas, we work alongside Texans committed to improving health within their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. Our goal is a Texas where everyone – no matter where they live, their age, race, or income – has the resources, support, and opportunities to prioritize health and live their best life. Through programs and partnerships designed to advance health on multiple fronts, we are shifting behaviors, practices, and policies to make health core to what it means to be a Texan.

Together, we are igniting the movement for a healthier Texas. Learn more, get involved, and give at
