CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TODAY TO STOP FAT AMENDMENTS TO HB 400

Why are some members of the Texas House trying to gut successful programs that can help us stop Texas’ terrible obesity epidemic? Please contact your state representative today through the TMA Grassroots Action Center. Ask him or her to “Vote No” on amendments to HB 400 that repeal school-based fitness measurements and coordinated school health education. “Texas physicians like you and me see the health effects of childhood obesity every day,” Dr. Bailey wrote in an action alert to TMA members that went out this morning. “We know that, ultimately, it is more expensive to treat an obese adult than to prevent obesity among our children.”
