WHY WE FIGHT:
To Build
Strong,
Healthy
Communities
Health and well-being are essential components of a
productive, stable life. Yet, many of our most vulnerable
neighbors struggle to access quality health care, supportive
services and a strong community network. Tennessee
ranks 43rd out of 50 states for overall health and ranks in
the bottom 20 percent of all states in diabetes and obesity,
cardiovascular and cancer deaths and premature death.
Roughly 10 percent of our population is uninsured.
Together, we are building a stronger, healthier Nashville by
helping people access quality health care, assisting those
suffering from mental health issues and chronic disease,
and bringing people together to make connections and build
strong, supportive communities.
