Return to contents

In September 2002, St. Luke's Episcopal Health Charities commenced the Houston - Harris County Youth Nutrition and Fitness Initiative (YNFI) in Houston's East End. Thirty-one community and academic members participated in a series of seven planning dialogues for the design and implementation of a multi-phase intervention strategy to address the public health concern surrounding kids and obesity. The result of these meetings and subsquent work is a strategic, comprehensive, community-based program for the treatment and prevention of overweight children and adolescents.
