Greater Houston Obesity Prevention and Treatment Resources

Currently, 58% of adults and 39% of children are classified as overweight or obese in the Greater Houston community. Fortunately, many Houston organizations including hospitals, universities, non-profits, and corporations, have developed a wide range of programs to prevent and treat obesity. This site aims to raise awareness of the local projects and initiatives and facilitate collaboration between organizations. We have compiled a list of available resources that have been developed to prevent and diminish overweight and obesity in the Greater Houston community.
