Growing Community Video Series

The Growing Community video series is a communications tool to educate and inspire communities into action to address obesity in Texas. 

The series consists of six obesity prevention topic areas that correspond with the six evidence-based target areas which combat obesity in communities and organizations. The videos can be shown as a screening at meetings to get people talking about what actions to take.
