Nashville Community Health and Wellness Team


The Metro Public Health Department is the lead agency for the “Nashville Community Health and Wellness Team.”  The coalition is made up of representatives from hospitals, government agencies, businesses, advocacy groups, and concerned citizens.

The team seeks to reduce the risk of disease and early death in the community by raising awareness of and encouraging participation in physical activity.  The team promotes physical activity as part of the daily routine for all people, especially older adults and children who do not regularly participate in sports activities.

The team's vision is "Active People = Healthy People".  The mission is to "Promote wellness for all ages through physical activity.”  The Community Health and Wellness Team provides leadership for the annual signature event, "Walk Nashville Week," which has consisted of:

  1. Walk to School Day

  2. Walk for Active Aging

  3. Titans Fans Walk to the Game

  4. Walk Somewhere! Day

  5. Walk to Lunch Day
