The monthly FrankTalks lecture series turned its attention to the health and well-being of our community on Monday, Dec. 12, with Franklin Mayor Ken Moore, Williamson County Health Department Director Cathy Montgomery, and Williamson Medical Center’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Starling Evins, presenting to those in attendance at Columbia State Community College.

Moore, who has been a proponent of Franklin Tomorrow’s Get Fit Franklin project, spoke on issues facing our community, including obesity and its impact to create chronic health issues. In 2016, Franklin was named a Healthier Tennessee pilot community by the Governor’s Foundation for a Healthier Tennessee, with Get Fit Franklin as a partner.

Montgomery presented statistics on health rankings and local measurements of teen drug, alcohol, and tobacco use.
