The City of Kingsport is honored to partner with Healthy Kingsport to improve the health of our staff and our citizens. As a whole, the collaborative that exists is strong, and the city appreciates the support other organizations are providing the effort.
For our staff, we have improved healthy options through small starts, such as installing water refilling stations and starting team challenges. We seek opportunities to improve our healthy options, constantly working towards a healthier workplace.
For our community, we continue to install more sidewalks and biking paths, with the help of state grants, as a mode of recreation as well as transportation. Also, exercise stations along the greenbelt are now available, and the Kingsport Aquatic Center recently became smoke free, a huge victory for the city and all who visit the Aquatic Center.
Healthy people are more productive people. Therefore, it is important to ensure we are doing our part to help produce healthy employees and citizens in an effort to improve the overall quality of life for everyone in Kingsport.
