With data analysis underway, NashvilleHealth and the Metro Public Health Department (MPHD) hosted a meeting of more than 50 Nashville Community Health + Well-being Survey stakeholders to discuss initial survey findings and garner insights about how the data might be visualized and utilized to better understand the health and well-being of Nashvillians. MPHD and NashvilleHealth will include input gathered into the plan for public release and sharing of the data.
NashvilleHealth and the MPHD partnered to host How Place Affects Health, a panel discussion of the built environment’s effect on health, and how our city can prioritize and plan for development that promotes sustainable, equitable and healthy places to live, work and play. The event, which featured local and national experts, was the second in the All In: Conversations on Health in Nashville speaker series.
Nearly 70 Nashville community, government, academic and health leaders reconvened in April at Belmont University to review the city’s current heart health initiatives and share ideas on strategies and best practices for the future. The morning meeting featured moderated conversations with the leaders of five local heart health initiatives and small group discussion about future collaborations. Highlighted organizations included: American Heart Association, Matthew Walker Comprehensive Clinic, Saint Thomas Health, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Tennessee Pharmacists Association.
Students in nearly 80 Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) learned about and practiced healthy lifestyles during Wellness Week 2019. With the help of 256 teachers around the county and 17 community partners, NashvilleHealth and MNPS partnered to present themes and activities focused on engaging students and staff in healthy eating, physical activity, and emotional well-being each day in Metro’s elementary, middle and high schools.
Thank you to our Wellness Week partners who participated, including Cigna, our Rethink Your Drink program sponsor.
