KINGSPORT, Tenn.—With the help of six employers in northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia, Wellmont Health System in Kingsport introduced a free community health initiative known as Wellmont LiveWell. Eastman Chemical Co., Food City, Alpha Natural Resources, Domtar Corp., Electro-Mechanical Corp., and Strongwell are the partners working with Wellmont to provide the online portal focused on a commitment to wellness and healthy living. The website, launched on July 10, allows participants to take a personal health assessment, access a health library and calendar of local health events, and sign up to receive personalized health information. “Together, with other businesses and communities, we can have a fundamental impact on our region,” Jim Rogers, Eastman's chairman and CEO, said in a news release. According to a recent report issued by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, most counties in northeast Tennessee scored in the middle or lower half in their state for health outcomes, while three counties in southwest Virginia ranked in the top five unhealthiest for their state.
