The candidates at the Houston mayoral forum will be discussing various health issues at Rice University’s BioScience Research Collaborative, 6500 Main St., tomorrow, Sept. 17 at 7 a.m.
The obesity epidemic will be one of the many topics expected to be covered at the forum. Other topics include promoting an active lifestyle and abiding by a healthy, nutrient-rich diet.
The candidates expected to attend include Chris Bell, Steve Costello, Adrian Garcia, Ben Hall, Bill King, Marty McVey and Sylvester Turner.
Given Houston has a proven track record of being among the fattest and generally unhealthiest cities in the country, the Houston mayoral forum will hopefully promote the importance of a healthy and fit lifestyle to Houstonians.
