STRONG Accountable Care Community

STRONG: Striving Towards Resilience & Opportunity for the Next Generation

Our goal is to transform the health of a 21-county region of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia by uniting efforts under a common agenda, mutually reinforcing activities, shared measures and two-way communication. We focus on enhancing supportive systems, programs and policies, and environments that nurture children, teens and families to ensure they reach their full potential. STRONG partners are your colleagues, friends and neighbors. United, we are making our community an even better place to live, work and play – not just today, but for years to come. Together, we’re STRONG.
