A big idea with hometown roots
Launched in 2011, Get Healthy West Georgia is a three-year initiative developed to improve nutrition, increase physical activity and reduce obesity in Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties. Led by Tanner Health System, Get Healthy West Georgia is made possible by an initial grant from the Community Foundation of West Georgia and support from additional sponsors.
With a goal of walking 1 million miles annually during the three-year initiative, Get Healthy West Georgia provides residents of all ages with the information, support and tools to “get healthy” through better nutrition and more exercise.
