With your support, NashvilleHealth is in the midst of impactful relationship building, shared learning and creating change. As we begin our work, NashvilleHealth has three initial areas of focus: tobacco cessation and prevention, hypertension and child health.

Tobacco Group Gathers for Work Session
NashvilleHealth recently hosted a second gathering of our Tobacco Working Group. More than 30 stakeholders provided feedback on recommendations from top national experts on tobacco cessation and prevention. Participants were placed in small groups for dynamic discussion on four areas for tobacco control activity in Nashville: policy, healthcare, community and mass media. We continue to work with our stakeholders as we design a tobacco control “prescription” for Nashville. To participate in these efforts, please click here.
