2012 Tennessee Men’s Health Report Card to be released Tuesday at LP Field in Nashville

June 8, 2012

Representatives from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Meharry Medical College and the Tennessee Department of Health will discuss the findings of the 2012 Tennessee Men’s Health Report Card at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 12, at LP Field in Nashville.

The Report Card provides data on the health status of more than 3 million adult men, comparing Tennessee to national benchmarks for health improvement established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report offers the opportunity to prospectively focus on improving health and health care in specific areas.

Data was collected from birth and death certificates, the statewide hospital discharge data reporting system, infectious diseases data reported to the State Department of Health, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, and the U.S. Census Current Population Survey for Tennessee.

Grades were assigned by comparing Tennessee data from calendar year 2010, the most recent set of complete data available, to national health objectives set by the CDC in its HP2020 framework (healthypeople.gov/2020).
