Texas Comptroller Joins Fight Against Childhood Obesity

Published on July 18, 2013 by Larry Crippen

This week, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced a partnership with the Texas Library Association to provide all public libraries and more than 1,100 public elementary schools with nutrition and fitness-related books and DVDs geared to children and pre-teens in the fight against obesity.

The partnership is part of the comptroller’s efforts to boost awareness of the agency’s legislatively mandated Reshaping Texas Web portal — a comprehensive statewide collection of resources and information to help Texans address the economic effects of obesity. Besides books and DVDs, the comptroller is also supplying free sports equipment to public schools in areas identified as being at high risk for obesity.

The Web portal is located at www.ReshapingTexas.org.
