Black May Run for Governor
AP Monday February 13, 2017

Diane Black may be in charge of one of the most powerful committees in Congress, but the Gallatin Republican says that doesn't mean she won't run for Tennessee governor next year.
Black was named interim chair of the House Budget Committee in January when President Donald Trump nominated Rep. Tom Price of Georgia to become secretary of Health and Human Services.
Black tells the Chattanooga Times Free Press that she sees her Congressional position as an "opportunity" to get the country's budget in order. But in the former state senator's words: "That doesn't preclude me from doing things later down the road."
Several candidates are expected to challenge for the Republican nomination to succeed term-limited Gov. Bill Haslam next year.

 


Health Leaders Celebrate Tennessee Quit Week
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Monday February 13, 2017

Tennessee Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, will join former U.S. Senator Bill Frist, MD, founder and chairman of NashvilleHealth and Governors Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the Tennessee State Capitol to celebrate Tennessee Quit Week and discuss opportunities for residents, government, business and non-profit leaders to partner in reducing tobacco use in Tennessee. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Old Supreme Court Chamber and is open to the public.

Tennessee Quit Week was created as an initiative of the TDH Statewide Tobacco-Free Coalition to reduce the burden of tobacco use by raising awareness of free resources available to help Tennesseans quit smoking and/or using other tobacco products. The coalition consists of key stakeholders and community partners from around the state whose purpose is to identify strengths, gaps and opportunities for tobacco control in Tennessee.

Tobacco use claims the lives of at least 30 Tennesseans each day and directly causes more than $2.6 billion in annual health care costs in the state. In addition, tobacco use costs Tennessee billions of dollars each year in lost productivity. These consequences could be eliminated by reducing nicotine addiction and tobacco use among Tennesseans.
