Houston's Wellness Association
The Houston Wellness Association is an organization with the mission to advance the health and well-being of the community and to promote the economic vitality of the wellness sector in Houston. The vision of the Houston Wellness Association is to transform our community into a widely-modeled and innovative community of healthy living. The Houston Wellness Association is an outgrowth of the Mayor’s Wellness Council and was officially chartered in December 2006.
Membership in the Houston Wellness Association is diverse. More than half of the membership represents corporate wellness programs, traditional medicine, and consulting services. The Houston Area Dietetic Association joined the Houston Wellness Association in 2007 as a charter member. H.A.N.D. participates in many Houston Wellness Association activities speaking as the nutrition expert and sharing the benefits of providing evidence-based nutritional care.
The association is made up of 12 special interest committees. H.A.N.D. primarily participates in the Food and Nutrition Committee; however members are encouraged to attend any committee meetings. Every month, Houston Wellness Association hosts networking and educational events. H.A.N.D. supports its members in the Houston Wellness Association with a Director-At-Large board position and a limited number of free memberships to the association through the H.A.N.D. corporate membership.
