Please join us as we discuss the results of the TMC Health Policy Institute’s Healthy Eating Initiative, our effort to promote healthy food choices within the medical center — and beyond.
We’ll discuss the results of several TMC efforts to promote healthy eating including:
- Labeling vending machines across the TMC
- Labeling cafeteria menu items in the TMC
- Engaging employees in a weight-reduction program
- Encouraging the purchase of healthy foods at corner stores in Houston neighborhoods
