The Nashville Community Health + Well-being Survey has been delivered to more than 12,000 mailboxes in Davidson County, and early response rates demonstrate a good representation of age, race and geographic location. NashvilleHealth and the Metro Public Health Department (MPHD) have joined forces to reach a broad cross-section of organizations and influencers who can help spread the word about the need to return the survey. Outreach efforts have included grassroots marketing, social media promotion, and traditional media relations. Thank you to the nearly 150 organizations who have shared our message with their constituents. These partners have helped us reach more than 25,000 people. Email here to join us to encourage your employees, members, colleagues and neighbors to take the survey should they receive it.
NashvilleHealth partnered with Mt. Zion Baptist Church to promote the ABCs of safe-sleep to the church’s congregation of more than 25,000. Safe Sleep materials created for the initiative featured Mt. Zion First Lady and new mom Dr. Stephaine Walker in safe sleep awareness imagery, which was distributed to the Mt. Zion congregations in Whites Creek and Antioch. The safe sleep message was shared from the pulpit, streamed live online, and promoted on 3,000 safe sleep handbills distributed during services. Special thanks to Tivity Health and the Metro Public Health Department for their support.
NashvilleHealth was proud to support the passage of the “Tom Cronan” Physical Education Act earlier this year. The bill requires all Tennessee elementary students to participate in a physical education class at least twice per week for no less than 60 minutes and is taught by a licensed physical education instructor.
