THE IMPACT

The effects of our work are listed below.  Some are works in progress.

  • Fitness Facility & Access -  As a result of our study, MCW identified the need for the city to adopt a strategy to maintain and grow adult-focused ability centers that contribute to the overall well-being of its citizens.
  • Filling the Healthy Sexuality Education Gap - As a  result of our study, MCW partnered with the TN Department of Children & Youth and UTC to present an all-day training session for parrents to learn how to educate their children about reproductive health.
  • Changing Outcomes for Teens: Reducing Teen Pregnancies - This study pointed out the need for informative, accurate education for our city's youth relative to their sexual behavior and relationshipal health.  It led to the educational program mentioned above.
