We are excited to launch a partnership with the Women’s Heart Alliance. Nashville is the organization’s pilot location for their “Cities and Communities with Heart” Initiative, which aims to reduce heart disease and stroke among women. Co-founded by Barbra Streisand and Ronald O. Perelman, WHA launched the initiative on February 27 with Mayor Megan Barry, alongside Martina McBride and so many other NashvilleHealth partners. There is much we can do together in the months and year ahead to improve women’s heart health. Check out the press coverage and video here from The Tennessean.
We are delighted to be a sponsor of the Baby University Community Baby Shower, alongside NashvilleHealth partners Meharry Medical College, Tennessee State University, and Metro Public Health Department. If you know a mom-to-be, share this invitation with her!

The NashvilleHealth Governing Board recently gathered for a quarterly update. One key discussion centered around workplace wellness. What works? What motivates employees to make changes in their daily lives that impact their health? Because ultimately, it’s their choice. We discussed various accountability and incentive programs. What does your company find effective? Share it with us.
The NashvilleHealth Steering Committee also met this month where the group heard from Dr. Shawn Joseph, director of Metro Nashville Public Schools, who gave an update on the strategic planning process for schools. We also heard updates from The Governor’s Foundation for Health & Wellness, The American Heart Association, Metro Public Health Department, and Saint Thomas Health.
Quittin’ Time in Tennessee wrapped this month, but there is more work to do! Alongside dozens of attending leaders from the state’s government, business, and non-profit organizations, Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson, and NashvilleHealth Founder Senator Bill Frist, MD, discussed and continue to share the critical need to come together and help Tennesseans quit smoking.
We are honored to now be co-located with the Center for Medical Interoperability. Our new offices are located on the OneC1ty Campus, just off Charlotte Avenue. We look forward to hosting many of you for various partnership meetings in this beautiful space!
