Ms. Texas United States - 2022

Systemic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol are the result of poor food choices. In low income areas, there is often, little to no access to healthy food options which poses a problem to treat these patient in the dental office. Nearly half of adults in the United States (116 million) have hypertension. 34.2 million people have diabetes.  94 million U.S. adults have total cholesterol levels higher than 200 mg/dL according to the CDC.

This really inspired to have do something to help these community

Thus, I’ve partnered with The Cultural Collection to create recipe cards that not only promote awareness of hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes. they will also  include healthy, affordable ingredients that are easily found in low income areas.

The funds collected from these recipe cards, are used to donate to food banks across Texas. More than 46 million Americans, rely on food pantries and meal programs to feed their families, that’s 1 in 7 people in the U.S.
