Teaching local students to save lives

When CPR is preformed properly and promptly during cardiac arrest, survival rates can double or triple. We fought to make this lifesaving training a graduation requirement for all Texas students. By filling our city with bystanders equipped to take action, we are helping to improve survival odds for everyone in Abilene.

Improving Quality of Life

We are working within our community to: Raise awareness about the vital effect lifestyle has on health. Make healthy options accessible and available for all. Help children form healthy habits that will last a lifetime, by removing obstacles to making healthy choices. Living healthy and free of disease makes a critical difference in quality of life.

Changing Policy

You're the Cure is working within our community to empower citizens to take informed action on local and state policies, and champion policies and laws that help people avoid unhealthy practices and create safer communities. Our advocates are addressing critical healthcare concerns by advocating for policies that can improve access and boost the quality and value of care.

Elevating Care

On average, men and women spend more than half of their waking hours at work – which can have a significant impact on our health. That is why we collaborate with Texas businesses to help create a more physically active, health-conscious culture in the office. From blood pressure screenings to fitness days, our local worksites are starting to work for our wellbeing.
