Tennessee’s Child Health Month (CHM), first proclaimed by President Calvin Coolidge as Child Health Day in 1928, is a call to all families, educators, health professionals, faith-based and community organizations, and all levels of government to help ensure Tennessee’s children are healthy. Tennessee invites all individuals, families and organizations to positively impact the lives of children and their families by participating in Child Health Month this October. Engage our children and host healthy, youth and teen-centered activities or support and partner with organizations that host activities, such as the Poster/PSA Contest for Children and Teenagers and the MASK UP for a Selfie!
