Take The First Step Initiative

The Take the First Step Initiative is to bring awareness to the impact of cardiovascular disease in Denton County.

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the # 1 killer of Denton County residents and many of the risk factors are preventable? In Denton County, approximately 27.2 % of residents are obese. About a third of adults have high cholesterol and nearly 19% have high blood pressure. These conditions can be prevented or controlled with regular physical activity and balanced eating. It’s time for Denton County to STOP BEING PASSIVE AND GET ACTIVE!
