Video: Tennessee’s Poor Health Hurts Our Economy

Tennessee is a great place to live. But we’re less healthy than the rest of the country, and that hurts our economy. If you’re familiar with our work at The Sycamore Institute (examples below), you’ve heard this before.

Today, however, we’re doing something new. We boiled down multiple studies, reports, and policy briefs into a single, 2.5 minute video. Watch it below.

The connection between health and prosperity is important, but not always widely known. So please, share this video with your family, friends, and colleagues.
