ECTOR COUNTY - Ector County is one of the most unhealthiest counties in the state but the county is hoping to change that. They've been given a $50,000 community health grant to help get people back in shape. In fact, 70% of adults in Ector County are overweight or obese.
"So unfortunately Ector County is not the healthiest. I don't know if the general community knows this," Diana Ruiz, Director of Community Health at Medical Center Hospital, said.
The unhealthy community has been years in the making but Medical Center Hospital is leading a Physical Activity Coalition to hopefully fix that.
