NashVitality

NashVitality is a local campaign that celebrates the spirit creating a healthy, active and green cityNashVitality. The places we live, work, learn, worship and play shape our habits, and our habits shape our health. We are what we eat: if junk food surrounds us, we will eat junk food; and if we put healthy food within reach, we eat better. Physical activity is essential to health, and we move more when we have convenient, safe, inviting places to be active. We will live longer, healthier lives when we surround ourselves with healthy choices and weave opportunities for healthy living into our communities.

NashVitality celebrates the spirit that is creating healthy, active communities everywhere in Nashville. Mayor Dean’s leadership in challenging Nashvillians to walk, to run, to play, and to get more familiar with all the healthy places in our city calls on us all to catch the spirit.

NashVitality was made possible through funding from a Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) grant awarded to the Metro Public Health Department by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The CPPW grant addressed one of the leading preventable causes of premature death and disability - obesity. CPPW Nashville created greater access to nutritious foods and safe physical activity, through policy, systems and environmental change, where we live, work, learn, worship and play.
