In May of 2022, Jenny Larios joined the TCiNN team as the North Texas Health and Nature Liaison. Since starting her role, Jenny has developed and created partnerships with environmental organizations, public health departments, and community members across North Texas. From community college professors to health department managers, Jenny has had the opportunity to promote the health benefits of increased time outdoors. From her various outreach events, conferences, and meetings with partners, Jenny decided to use the Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights (COBOR) as a strategy in North Texas. Along with COBOR, Jenny is also working on getting the LEAP program (spearheaded by the Rio Grande Valley Health and Nature Liaison) implemented throughout cities in the DFW metroplex.
