East Aldine is home to a vibrant community of people who are passionate about health and wellness, as well as feeling connected to each other. Recent research from the East Aldine Livable Center Project indicated that East Aldine residents report higher rates of social and community cohesion than residents of Harris County as a whole. However, they also report higher rates of chronic illness like obesity, and lower rates of physical activity.

It’s time to understand – and try to impact – the many factors driving these undesirable health outcomes in East Aldine! In Spring of 2022, a group of community members and organizations partnered with the East Aldine Management District, Harris County Precinct 2, Harris County Public Health and Tufts University’s Catalyzing Communities project to create a whole-of-community health initiative, Revitalizing East Aldine Community Health (REACH).
