The Anderson County Health Department is actively participating in various activities during National Public Health Week to promote the health and well-being of residents. On April 1, staff will assist patients in registering to vote and collect hygiene products to donate to the Tennessee Out-Reach Center for Homeless. They will also partner with UT Extension to offer an after-school yoga club at Glenwood Elementary.

On April 2, staff will host a tobacco/vaping prevention program called “Catch My Breath” at Grand Oaks Elementary for fifth graders. Anti-tobacco signage will be dropped off at participating schools. Additionally, they will promote outdoor activities at the Anderson County Senior Center with their Matter of Balance class.

April 3 will feature more sessions of the “Catch My Breath” curriculum for fifth graders, followed by a promotion of access to vaccines on April 4. On April 5, hygiene products collected will be donated to the center for homeless, and staff will be encouraged to walk at work. Finally, on April 7, staff will attend the “Celebration of a Young Child” event to promote the future of public health.
