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
By participating in the Healthier Tennessee Communities program, we are improving the lives of so many people in Tullahoma by encouraging physical activity, better nutrition, and fewer people using tobacco.Mayor Lane CurleeCity of Tullahoma
