Nine new Healthier Tennessee communities recognized by Gov. Haslam

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson have designated nine areas as ‘Healthier Tennessee Communities.’

These include: Bradley, Dickson, Macon, Maury, Rhea and Wilson counties, and the cities of Cookeville, Clarksville and Collegedale, for their work “to improve the health of their citizens.”

“We must encourage and enable community-led efforts like the ones we’re celebrating today if we want to improve the health and quality of life of Tennesseans,” said Governor Haslam. To be designated, the communities established wellness councils and developed sustainable community-wide events and activities that support physical activity, healthy eating and tobacco abstinence. They then tracked and measured outputs and accomplishments of the programs.
