Thanks for making Tennessee a healthier state.
The Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to enabling and encouraging Tennesseans to lead healthier lives. Based in Nashville, the Foundation brings together a statewide coalition of employers, health insurers, hospital systems, local governments, school systems and healthcare-focused foundations and community organizations to effect positive, measurable change.
The Foundation’s Healthier Tennessee initiative strives to increase the number of Tennesseans who are physically active for at least 30 minutes five times a week, promote a healthy diet, and reduce the number of people who use tobacco. The Foundation is funded through a combination of public and private-sector sources and is guided by a Board of Directors. A staff of eight professionals has been assembled to direct the Foundation and implement the Healthier Tennessee initiative.
The councils below were formed to provide guidance, expert advice, and evaluation of programs and tools that the Foundation selects, encourages, and enables. They will offer opinions and comments on performance measures and the initiative’s messaging and awareness campaigns. Panel members will advise the Foundation’s staff, be a resource for its Board of Directors, and serve as a sounding board and authority for those engaged in its work.
