CHI Memorial and American Heart Association Encourage Chattanooga to be Healthy For Good

02/14/17 News Article

CHI Memorial, Chattanooga, TN, has teamed with the American Heart Association to support the new Healthy For Good movement in Chattanooga through 2021. The movement encourages people to make a commitment to live healthier lives.

For more than 90 years, heart disease has been the number one cause of death for all Americans, yet 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented through lifestyle changes and education. Throughout the year, the American Heart Association and CHI Memorial will host events and engage community members in outreach efforts based on the four pillars of Healthy For Good: add Color, Eat Smart, Move More and Be Well.

“This focused effort confirms our ongoing commitment and dedication to the prevention, education and treatment of heart disease and stroke,” said Larry Schumacher, CEO, CHI Memorial and SVP of operations for the Southeast Division of CHI. The partnership kicked off in January with the first Chattanooga Worksite Wellness Summit, which explored how companies can create a culture of health.

This focused effort confirms our ongoing commitment and dedication to the prevention, education and treatment of heart disease and stroke.
