Healthy Living Alliance
The Healthy Living Alliance (HLA) was formed in 2011 by the Montgomery County United Way in an effort to address high obesity rates within the county. The Montgomery County 2011 Community Health Assessment compiled by the Texas Health Institute reported 70% of adults within Montgomery county to be obese or overweight. The number of adults reported as overweight or obese within income populations of $25,000 a year or less was 84%.
To reach our goal, we need volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to help with the Healthy Living Alliance, please contact Candice Rouquette at 281-292-4155 x259.
