Demanding healthy communities has become a battle cry in Memphis. As a city, we understand at the core of happiness, economic development and success is a population of healthy citizens. Recent years have seen a confluence of corporate, non-profit and community actions all directed at a single-goal: making Memphis healthy. And the communal work is not coindidence, because it takes everyone's involvement to create a healthy environment.

We are working together to design our city – our buildings, neighborhoods, communities – to make healthy living an easy choice.
