Go Healthy Houston - Mayor's Report
Go Healthy Houston is an initiative designed to reduce obesity and increase healthy eating and exercise. Originally launched by former Mayor Annise Parker and picked up and supported by current Mayor Sylvester Turner the Go Healthy Houston Mayors Report provides a review of Go Healthy Houston through the years.
All Houstonians deserve the opportunity to make healthy choices at work. Providing healthy options in the workplace is one small way employers can encourage healthy behaviors. Healthy vending strategies are an emerging approach to healthy food procurement and are recommended by leading health institutions such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
ACTIVE LIVING PLAN
Go Healthy Houston presents the Active Living Plan, a plan rooted in a “Health in All Policies” approach which recognizes that policy decisions and environmental changes made within multiple sectors impact public health. “Health in All Policies” therefore requires collaboration and support from many city and county departments including Planning, Public Works, METRO, Parks, and Health along with an array of community partner organizations in health care, education, media, business, sports, land use/community design, and nonprofit sectors. Though separate and autonomous, the Houston Active Living Plan complements and builds upon strategies within Plan Houston that focus on nurturing safe and healthy neighborhoods and connecting people and places.
GO WALK HOUSTON
It’s time for Houston to move and increase the levels of physical activity and fitness! Walking is one of the most common forms of physical activity across the country, and it’s an excellent way for everyone of all ages to get out and be active. The Go Healthy Houston Taskforce is stepping it up and responding to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to promote walking and walkable communities by motivating communities and partners to Go Walk Houston. So let’s move Houston! Let’s show each other how we walk and stay active!
