Preventing disease and maintaining good health is easier when people and communities are surrounded by environments where the healthy choice is the easy choice. 

Improving health is everybody's business so we work to convene, connect, and communicate through public-private partnerships that leverage resources to establish healthier places, programs and policies toward making Louisville one of the healthiest cities in the country. 

The Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement is directed by Dr. Joan Schulte, director, Louisville Metro Public Health & Wellness, in cooperation with a leadership team of all Louisville Metro agency directors to inform the development of organization and legislative policies that impact health.
