Dr. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System &#40;PMATS&#41;, for the Texas Department of State and Health Services.
