Science and Community aims to promote sustainable obesity prevention and reduction among our African American and Hispanic or Latino communities by capitalizing on unique opportunities presented in the City of Houston.

The opportunity receptions will launch a series of interactive meetings, including workshops, symposia and conferences to form a partnership focusing on the problem of obesity across the lifespan with particular attention to children and women.
