Houston Health Day says
Gather your family and friends and head over to the second annual Houston Health Day, a free event jam-packed with fun activities, live demos, games and prizes. You’ll learn to live healthier and how to access the wide range of health services and programs offered by the Houston Health Department.

Enjoy live demos including healthy eating and cooking, yoga, Zumba, hip hop fitness, line dancing and a leisurely fun walk through Hermann Park. Catch performances by step dancers and cheerleading groups while your children play on a moonwalk.

Every hour you will get to enter drawings for prizes such as bikes, scooters and helmets, training weights, jump ropes, pedometers, sporty drawstring backpacks and more.

You will learn about a variety of health issues and engage with the Houston Health Department’s programs and services including immunizations, dental health, family planning, free diabetes center, nurses home visitation, childhood lead poisoning prevention, farmers’ markets, community gardens and child vision screening and referrals. You’ll also become more familiar with ways to help prevent chronic diseases, HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases, tuberculosis and colorectal cancer.

If your family needs to connect to medical care, affordable health care plans, adolescent health services or human services, you will get that too. Plus, we will show you how to prepare for emergencies and disasters.

The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program will help you sign up for free nutritious foods and nutrition education if you are a woman who is pregnant, breastfeeding, has given birth in the last six months or has children up to age 5 who have nutrition-related health problems. Our Harris County Area Agency on Aging will offer the elderly and their families plenty of information about senior services that promote independence and well-being.
