About Get Healthy, Live Well

Many people are suffering with chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. Most risks for these diseases are linked to lifestyle behaviors that can be changed to prevent the onset and reduce the severity of illness. But sadly, many low-income and rural residents lack the resources needed to make healthy changes.

Recognizing the barriers that prevent people from adopting healthy habits, Tanner Health System is leading the charge to address these critical needs. Since 2012, Get Healthy, Live Well — a comprehensive community health collaborative led by Tanner — has been working to provide community members in its service area the resources they need to lead healthier lifestyles. With the help of its partners and volunteers, Get Healthy, Live Well is helping make communities a healthier place to live, learn, work, play and pray.

Get Healthy, Live Well’s mission

Get Healthy, Live Well is working to promote a healthy lifestyle and prevent chronic disease by:

  • Decreasing health disparities
  • Reducing obesity rates
  • Eliminating tobacco use
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Improving nutrition

To help accomplish its mission, Get Healthy, Live Well hosts a variety of programs and launches multiple awareness campaigns that offer valuable resources. They include cooking classes, health education classes, walking groups and volunteer opportunities.

Get Healthy, Live Well is steered by a coalition of partners and volunteers who work together to establish, advance and maintain effective strategies that continuously improve the health and quality of life of west Georgia residents. Their efforts are guided by a comprehensive community health needs assessment and community health implementation strategy that identifies and addresses the needs of underserved communities across Tanner’s service area.
