Youth Health Board members announced
Twenty-five Knox County high school students started their year of service on the Youth Health Board with a retreat last Friday at the Knoxville Zoo. A collaborative effort between the Knox County Health Department (KCHD) and Coordinated School Health, the Youth Health Board serves as a forum for youth to affect our community's well-being through volunteer activities and service-learning projects.

"Youth Health Board provides an excellent opportunity for students interested in public health to not only learn about a variety of public health issues, but also to make a difference in the community as it relates to public health," said KCHD Youth Health Board Co-facilitator Kerri Thompson. "We're looking forward to a great year with this passionate group."
