HealthConnections: Together Healthy Knox

Jul 31, 2018

Knox County's Community Health Council, now in its fifth year, studies public health patterns, makes recommendations to civic leaders and creates plans to improve the health of the county's residents.

The group's most recent community health assessment collects data on a range of issues, from drug abuse to mental health to basic health and wellness habits. In this edition of HealthConnections, Community Health Council chair Lara Fleming and Knox County Health Department's Erin Read stop by to tell Dr. Carole Myers about the committee's work and what they plan to study for the next assessment, due in 2019.
