Yahoo! Facts at a Glance

The Problem Solving for Better Health® (PSBH®) program in Texas was established in 2001 and focuses on communities in and around southeast Houston. A number of projects utilize education to reduce the incidence of and treat serious, chronic illnesses such as diabetes and AIDS, which have become prevalent in the community.

With a population that is 39.8% Hispanic, 29.1% Caucasian, 24.3% African-American, and 5.9% Asian, Houston, along with other large cities in Texas, has grown more ethnically diverse over the past decade. Every year the number and scope of the city’s challenging health projects has grown. Several of the projects have gained recognition and support from the Mayor’s Office, as well as the Houston City Council.
