Henry County is one of 16 Tennessee pilot counties to conduct a county health assessment this spring.

The Tennessee Department of Health reports the assessments will use data and community engagement to identify and prioritize three health issues.

TDH Spokesperson Elizabeth Hart said all 89 rural Tennessee counties will be assessed after the pilot on a three-year rolling cycle. She said local health councils will create strategies to tackle those issues.

The pilot assessments will run through June.
