The Coffee County Health Council is a coalition of dedicated individuals representing various facets of our health community. They have a common interest in the health and well being of Coffee County. Our goal is to improve nutrition, decrease obesity rates and chronic disease, and contribute to overall fitness of the community as a whole.
The Coffee County Health Council developed an Eat Well Play More Coffee County Health Plan in 2012 to achieve a healthier Coffee County for our residents. Goals and objectives and action steps are included in the plan to create change at the local level.
Governor Bill Haslam has made a push to improve the health of Tennesseans by creating The Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness, a non-profit corporation dedicated to enabling and encouraging Tennesseans to lead healthier lives. The Foundation is funded through a combination of public and private-sector sources, and is guided by an independent Board of Directors.
