The UT System and IT’S TIME TEXAS, a statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health and wellness in Texas communities, are joining forces to launch “Healthier Texas,” an initiative that will address obesity, nutrition, physical fitness and tobacco use.

The inaugural Healthier Texas Summit is being held on November 6-7 in Austin. It represents our initiative’s first major project, and will build on the great work that IT’S TIME TEXAS has done with its annual summit over the past few years.
