The 2012 Tennessee Men’s Health Report Card will be publicly presented on Tuesday, June 12, in an event at LP Field in Nashville. A meet-and-greet will begin in the Club Level at 10 AM prior to the formal presentation at 10:30. Free parking will be available, along with light refreshments.
The Report Card is a joint production of Meharry Medical College, the Tennessee Department of Health, and the Vanderbilt Institute for Medicine and Public Health. It highlights statewide data trends regarding causes of death, infectious disease, health behaviors, and obstacles to wellness—including suicide—among adult men across the state. It also grades the state of Tennessee’s progress towards the goals set forth in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’s “Healthy People 2020″ initiative.
We encourage you to attend this event and learn more about the factors affecting men’s health in the state of Tennessee, and to share the event flyer with your professional and personal contacts.
