Programs: One key initiative Discovery Center has begun is in response to the local and nation-wide epidemic of childhood obesity. With Tennessee ranking third in the country in childhood obesity, it became apparent that we needed to strengthen partnerships with area schools, local businesses, governments, and other non-profit organizations to implement effective health and nutrition programs.

Our Discovering Healthy Families initiative, which began in the fall of 2006, has raised awareness about health issues and served as an effective means to affect true lifestyle changes in participating families. Collaborations with the HCA Foundation, StoneCrest Medical Center, Middle Tennessee State University, and the American Heart Association have allowed us to provide healthy menus from local dietitians, health tests for participants, and physical activities for families to enjoy together. This program is a huge success, and we are seeking sponsors to expand the program in 2009.

Mission:
Discovery Center at Murfree Spring is a hands-on museum and nature center dedicated to inspiring children and strengthening families through hands-on exhibits and innovative programs.
