Faculty from the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health are joining forces with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, the Texas A&M College of Engineering, the Texas A&M University Division of Research, and the Texas A&M College of Geoscience to establish the Texas A&M University Coalition for Healthy Active Living (TAMU-CHAL).

Regents and Distinguished Professor Marcia Ory, Ph.D., director of the Program on Healthy Aging at the Texas A&M School of Public Health, will serve as co-PI and sees TAMU-CHAL as “the perfect opportunity to integrate multiple perspectives and disciplines to improve public and individual health, health care system and delivery, and the value of health care solutions.”

Additional Texas A&M School of Public Health faculty working with the multidisciplinary team include Associate Professor Yan Hong, Ph.D. and Assistant Professor Samuel Towne, Ph.D.
