During their formative years, pre-teen girls are susceptible to issues concerning bullying, Internet safety, poor nutrition and low self-esteem. That’s why Texas Health Resources, in collaboration with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Laura W. Bush Institute For Women’s Health, is providing support to young women in North Texas with the GIRL (Girls in Real Life) Power Program. At this critical stage in girls’ lives, GIRL Power hopes to strengthen the bond and dialogue between these girls and their mothers (or other important women) to build confidence and improve health.

$25 for mother/daughter pair; $15 for each additional child.
