Dear HealthStart Supporter,
HealthStart turned 7 last year, and like a 7-year old child, we’re still young, but coming into our own. In fact, last year HealthStart had our biggest year of financial and leadership growth ever.
Our Board of Directors is now eleven members. We added a Vice Chair and Technology Committee Chair to our board. A Board Vice Chair means continuity for our board leadership. Our Technology Chair has helped us create a phased plan to support the development of our digital game app, Monstalia™️.
HealthStart has also strengthened old and new partnerships. You can find us at the Texas Farmers Markets where we will provide healthy children’s activities this Spring. St. Edwards University’s Interactive Game Studies program continues to send us amazing game design talent to help with Monstralia’s development.
We hope to make our Children’s Health Education Workshops Series (CHEWS) available for home-schooled children and public elementary school visitors at Austin Central Library and Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) apartments residents throughout 2018.
None of this would be possible without your support. Take a look at our announcements in this issue to see how you can get involved.
Wishing you a healthy New Year,
