What We Do

 

The Nashville Collaborative has four functions:

  1. Provide minor medical services such as blood pressure checks and health counseling
  2. Educate the community through health skills building
  3. Link community and academic partners together to develop and test interventions to decrease childhood obesity
  4. Evaluate all efforts so that effective programs can be sustained by working with community partners and policy makers.

Collaborative mission

Our mission is to build mutually beneficial collaborations between community and academic partners that promote the development, implementation, and translation of innovative and sustainable interventions that measurably improve child health by strengthening families and neighborhoods.

Through this community-academic model we will first focus on reducing childhood obesity.
