Valerie Acosta is the Executive Director of Healthy City in Midland, Texas. She is passionate about helping others improve their quality of life through simple lifestyle choices.
In 2016, a group of doctors in Midland, Texas saw a need for change in the way their patients were being treated. They knew medication was not the only answer to tackling health problems and started the Lifestyle Medicine Center. Healthy City was created to support the community in making lifestyle changes to improve their health. Midland County is now ranked 27 out of 250 counties in Texas for health, the best ranking the county has ever achieved. The Food Is Medicine Conference is happening again this year on August 6 and the Executive Director of Health City, Valerie Acosta, is sharing five reasons why you should attend.
In this episode, you will learn the following:

  • How Healthy City, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a local Lifestyle Medicine Center are working together to make Midland, Texas a healthier community
  • How the Lifestyle Medicine Center uses the pillars of lifestyle medicine to help people recover and improve their quality of life
  • How changing people's diets can be harder than changing religions
