¡Mucho Gusto!

Mucho Gusto is a health and wellness expo geared toward middle and high school students and their families. Separating ourselves from existing health and wellness fairs, Texas Public Radio looks to transform wellness from metrics and data and explore what it means to destress, and cope in times of turbulence and uncertainty.

Thank you for joining us for our first of many! Take a look at what you missed, and we will see you in 2023!
