How it works

Tennesseans are making our cities, towns, counties, neighborhoods, and campuses healthier, one community at a time




In more than 100 locations across Tennessee, local citizens are making the quality of life better in our state, one community at a time. They’re taking part in a grassroots movement with simple, free, and effective ways to help their friends and neighbors be more active, eat more nutritious food, and stay away from tobacco.

Here's what people are saying about the community-based campaign to make this a healthier state


Hickman County shares their story

Is your community on the map?

In Tennessee’s largest cities, people are teaming up with the folks next door and down the block to create Healthier Tennessee Neighborhoods.


Students, faculty, and staff on college and university campuses are part of the movement, too.
