Governor Bill Haslam has proclaimed October 1-7, 2017 Child Health Week in Tennessee. The Tennessee Department of Health encourages all Tennesseans to put the health and well-being of children first during Child Health Week and every day of the year.

Many resources are available to promote children’s health:

Collectively, these efforts, along with many others, make it easier for parents to help children live healthier lives and prepare for a healthy future.

Every Tennessean can have a positive impact on the health and well-being of children. Parents can help their kids stay active and encourage healthy eating habits. Schools and communities can create environments that foster healthy lifestyles. Health providers can promote regular checkups and immunizations and help children and families manage childhood diseases. Together, we can secure a healthier future for all of Tennessee's children.
