Healthy Kingsport is a coalition of community partners whose mission is “to create a community culture of healthy living by promoting awareness, influencing policy, and enhancing infrastructure.”
Improving your health benefits you physically, emotionally and financially. The measure of a healthy community is the health of each individual member of that community. It’s our fervent hope that every person in our region begins to take “Small Starts” towards a healthier life style.
Small starts can lead to amazing changes in your health.
All three of these teams are afiliated with Wellmont Health System
