The Blount County Community Health Initiative History and Mission
The Blount County Community Health Initiative is the result of a 1996 state mandate requiring each Tennessee county to develop a health council, which could address issues specific to the local community.
Blount Memorial Hopsital, Blount Memorial Foundation, Blount Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, First Tennessee, ALCOA, Governments of Blount County, Maryville and Alcoa, Blount County Health Department and other interested partners supported this community-wide initiative to address the health needs of Blount County.
The initiative is comprised of a steering committee, which is chaired by Blount Memorial Community Outreach coordinator Judy Clabough and whose members include representatives from the Blount County Chamber Partners and the Blount County Health Department. The committee also includes each chairperson from the initiative's seven volunteer action teams.
The mission of the Blount County Community Health Initiative is to identify and prioritize the health needs of the community in order to respond to these needs and coordinate resources to promote a healthy community.
