Waco-McLennan County Active Living Plan

We need your voice!

We will be conducting a survey and community conversations in the Waco-McLennan County community to better understand how you are physically active and how Waco can promote health and physical activity! We hope you consider taking our survey (10-15 minutes long) in which everyone will be entered to win one of 10 $25 gift cards and/or our community conversations (60 minutes) in which all participants get $20 gift cards.

Waco-McLennan County Residents - Please consider participating by taking the survey and/or signing up for a community conversation

This project was supported by the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, funded as well as the Texas Healthy Communities grant and the Texas Health and Human Services.


This project would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of several student researchers. This work helps them to get research experience but we could also not do this without their help.
