GTEC Hosts Students for “Healthy Living Habits”

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, September 20th, Golden Triangle Emergency Center hosted a “Healthy Living Habits” field trip at our Port Arthur location. The event was attended by approximately 116 local-area 4th graders and focused on educating them about healthy habits they can incorporate into their daily lives.

The Importance of Healthy Living Habits

We are excited to share this information with the school children because healthy daily habits are truly the cornerstone of good health. Maintaining healthy habits is one of the most important things a person can do for their overall health and happiness. Everyone knows, a single exercise session or a day of healthy eating won’t solve all health problems, but over time by incorporating these activities into daily life people can ward off many diseases and live longer, healthier lives. Because of this cumulative effect that makes it all the more beneficial to get kids started early on the path of healthy daily habits.


Another major benefit of teaching kids healthy living habits is that childhood is when we form many of the habits that last a lifetime and ultimately become second nature. After all, most adults don’t think twice about getting out of bed every morning and brushing their teeth. We want to make it just as natural and easy for these kids to develop and maintain those healthy habits.

GTEC’s On-Going Commitment to Community Health

This field trip is part of GTEC’s overall commitment to helping our local community residents live the healthiest, best quality lives they can. In fact this will be the second time we’ve done a presentation for local school kids at our Port Arthur facility. Last May we also hosted a group of 4th grades. GTEC is also proud to work closely with the community for our annual charity golf tournament where all proceeds go to the United Way, health fairs, and numerous other entertaining and informative events.
