About the Community Health Council

The Community Health Council works with partners across Knox County in pursuit of its vision of a healthy life for all. It was established in 2013 by ordinance of the Knox County Commission, with supporting resolutions from the Knoxville City Council and the Town of Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen.

The Council's purposes are:

  • To facilitate a community-wide approach to improving the health of all people in our community
  • To act as an advisory body to elected and appointed officials in matter of health

About every five years, the Council selects priority health issues and drafts a Community Health Improvement Plan, which contains measurable objectives for improvement and acts as a foundation for a detailed action plan.
