Texas Healthy Community Coordinators
The Live Well Coalition is a collaboration between the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District, Texas Healthy Communities, and Taylor County community members in an effort to make our community healthier. Facilitated by the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District, The Live Well Coalition focuses on promoting active living and healthy eating to reduce the risk of chronic disease in our community. Becoming a Coalition Partner, we take responsibility to promote physical activity and events throughout Abilene, to increase access to exercise for our neighbors.
Our mission is to work together to create a culture of health and wellness that is equitable for all community members.
Texas Healthy Communities
Texas Healthy Communities (TXHC) utilizes public health practices to assess the local community and then implement change. Changes are focused on the local environment and policy with the overarching goal to reduce risk factors associated with chronic disease. Communities are assessed on eight (8) health indicators such as access to healthy eating options, physical activity and mother friendly work-sites. High performing communities are recognized as a "Texas Healthy Community".
