John Sharp, chancellor of the Texas A&M University System, launched Healthy South Texas, a pilot effort to reduce preventable diseases in the region.
“Essentially, we’re creating a new crop of AgriLife Extension agents, poised to empower Texans to take control of their own health and wellness,” said Sharp.
The program will focus on the highest impact diseases in the region, including diabetes, asthma and infectious diseases. It will bring together experts from medicine, nursing, pharmacy, biomedical science, public health, architecture and AgriLife Extension.
