National Public Health Week

It's National Public Health Week, and we want to thank all public health professionals for protecting and bettering our communities every day, especially now. The COVID-19 pandemic and our response illustrates the critical importance of public health infrastructure, preparedness and funding. These areas are essential in creating and maintaining a healthy and safe community and nation.  #ThankYouPublicHealth

Partnering to Win the Battle

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted many unique partnerships in our community. Alliances that are educating and supporting Nashvillians of all ages, advancing ideas and research, and championing  business. Organizations and individuals are working together in innovative ways for the betterment of our city during this unprecedented crisis. Here are a few of the collaborations making us Nashville Strong. 
  • Metro Nashville Public Schools and Nashville Public Television have partnered to broadcast eight hours of “At Home Learning” programming for students and children each weekday.
  • Nashville celebrities have teamed up with the state of Tennessee to launch the "Do Your Part, Stay Apart" PSA campaign aimed at encouraging Tennesseans to practice recommended protocols to avoid transmission of COVID-19. 
  • With help from the Metro Nashville Police Department and Amerigroup, Nashville General Hospital's Food Pharmacy is delivering nutritional food totes with up to five days of shelf-stable and fresh produce, low salt and low-fat meals. 
  • In partnership with Metro Schools and Second Harvest Food Bank, YMCA Camp Widjiwagan is preparing and distributing more than 1,700 meals each weekday to kids in need and their families for as long as school is out.
