Spring Hill designated by Gov. Haslam as a 'Healthier Tennessee Community'

Spring Hill named Healthier Tennessee Community by Governor

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and the Governor's Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, designated 22 communities as "Healthier Tennessee Communities."
The recognition honored the City of Spring Hill along with 21 TN counties for their successful work to improve the health of their citizens.
The Foundation launched the Healthier Tennessee Communities initiative in March 2015 with nine pilot communities. Today, more than 100 communities, neighborhoods and college campuses are engaged with the program and 46 have already received the designation.
"We must continue to encourage and enable community-led efforts like the ones we're celebrating today if we want to improve the health and quality of life of Tennesseans," Gov. Haslam said. "I congratulate these communities on their efforts to improve the health of their citizens."
The Healthier Tennessee Communities initiative takes a grassroots approach to improving Tennesseans' health by engaging citizens and local leaders in cities, towns, counties,
neighborhoods and college campuses across the state. To be designated, the communities established wellness councils and developed sustainable community-wide events and activities that support physical activity, healthy eating and
tobacco abstinence. This includes the Spring Hill Mayor's Healthy Challenge, the annual Spring Hill Health and Wellness Fair, and the Spring Hill Community Garden. They then tracked and measured outputs and accomplishments of the programs.
