|Texas Commissioner of Health Dr. Eduardo J. Sanchez and the Texas Board of Health convened a Public Health Improvement Steering Committee in September 2002 to guide the many partners in the public health system in defining shared public health improvement goals for 2010. The Steering Committee is made up of representatives of 17 councils, organizations, and agencies that have a broad perspective on public health practice in Texas. The Environmental Education Foundation is a partner organization that was invited to join the Steering Committee in developing the goals to be reached by 2010. Collectively, the Steering Committee and partners are called the Texas State Strategic Health Partnership (Partnership).
