Launched last fall by Senator Bill Frist, NashvilleHealth is a bold new initiative that creates a culture of health and well-being by serving as a convener to open dialogue, align resources and build smart strategic partnerships to forge a dynamic plan to measurably improve the health of all Nashvillians.
While Nashville has enjoyed remarkable recent economic momentum, positive publicity and status as a health care services capital, the health of our broader population is poor. And, if we do not address this in a cross-community manner, it threatens our city’s long-term economic and social vitality.
We will address big issues affecting our population’s health, from access to care, to environmental issues and social determinants, to safety and beyond. As we begin our work we are focusing on three specific areas: tobacco cessation and prevention, hypertension and child health. To truly create change, we need you to join us.
