About

Better Tennessee celebrates the people and organizations dedicated to improving the health of Tennesseans. Through our magazine, website and social media channels, we explore the health issues facing our state and highlight the people who are trying to solve them.

From obesity to infant mortality to prescription drug abuse, we want to connect Tennesseans with practical solutions to their health problems. By inspiring action — whether it’s living a healthier life or donating time or money to health-related causes — we want to do our part to create healthier kids, adults and communities throughout Tennessee.

Better Tennessee was created and is managed by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, a statewide not-for-profit company that serves more than 3 million members through its health plans.
