  4. 4. Mission Statement <ul><li>We all have a choice on the amount of impact that we have on the world. We can choose to pretend like it doesn’t matter, or we can do something about it. For the first time in the world there are more people who are overweight than starving. People are moving less and eating more, and despite the $2.2 trillion spent by the US Government on health care this year ($7,129 per person) Americans are having more health problems than ever in history. There are numerous reasons for this, and there are people out there who are desperate for help. That tells me that if they only had the right information, real information that produced results, their lives could be changed. People would live longer, be healthier, be more active, be happier, and live a more fulfilling life. I’m one man, and I definitely don’t know it all, but I care, and I feel that if I can find other people that care, that specialize in other areas of health, we could get together and at least help the people in Katy. This is about changing lives, families, and a community. It’s taking small steps to reach out to the small world that we live in, and changing it. - Jason Hodge- November 2 nd , 2006 </li></ul>
