Though Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia provide numerous opportunities for healthy, active living, they consistently rank among the least healthy areas in the nation.
The LiveWell initiative aims to change that by helping individuals, businesses and communities achieve better health and wellness regionwide.
A healthier region starts with healthier individuals. Everyone who chooses to take the stairs instead of the elevator or snack on vegetables instead of potato chips makes our communities a little better.
Whether it's eating better, exercising more or quitting smoking, the changes we make will help bring greater change. We can, over time, reduce preventable health care costs and improve the quality of life here at home.

LiveWell is working with local communities to establish resources for better health and wellness throughout our region. By providing our friends and neighbors the tools and information they need to pursue healthy choices and lifestyles, we can help build a culture of wellness for future generations.
Leading organizations have realized that a healthy workforce is as happy workforce. Investing in preventive health practices such as screenings, immunizations, health risk assessments and health awareness and education efforts will build and drive momentum for healthy change.
And LiveWell is partnering with area businesses, grocery stores, restaurants and municipalities to help ensure healthy choices are convenient, inexpensive and accessible.
Wellmont's mission is to provide superior health care with compassion. But as a health system, our responsibility to the community extends beyond caring for the patients in our hospitals. It's also our duty to model healthy behaviors, such as eating well and exercising regularly.
By changing our habits and striving for long-term success, we will, over time, create a new tradition of wellness in the mountains.
