HRI collaborated with Council Member Karla Cisneros to present the 2019 Health and Resource Fair to introduce Project TOuch to the East End

The HEALTH Research Institute kicked off the year with a health fair on Jan 26 sponsored by the TOUCH program, in collaboration with Councilwoman Karla Cisneros and the UnitedHealthcare Foundation. The health and resource fair was held at BakerRipley and the Houston Food Bank distributed free vegetables, fruits and food to the community attendees.The event helped bring together a congregation of dynamic, health-focused vendors from all over the city. HRI looks to build upon the momentum by sharing the resources we offer by participating in health fairs across the city and recruiting for the many research projects we are undertaking. 


Projects Taking Texas Tobacco Free and UHAND were also in attendance.
