A board member for Healthy Tennessee, a non-profit organization founded By Dr Manny and Maya Sethi, released a statement today saying he’s fed up with vicious attacks on a non-partisan organization designed to provide free health care for Tennesseans.

“It’s unfortunate our political system has gotten to this. Politicians are now slandering an organization that saves life’s and has never taken a dime of government money” said Dr Mitch Mutter, a cardiologist from Chattanooga.

“Healthy Tennessee has held free health fairs for veteran’s families, victims of the Smoky Mountain fires, rural Appalachia and intercity families across the state for almost 10 years. We are a non-partisan, non-political organization that helps people who can’t help themselves. Maybe these politicians should talk about the good and what they are going to do for Americans — not drag a non-profit doing good work into their political campaigns.”

Healthy Tennessee is a non-profit organization that provides health education and community training opportunities through free healthy fairs to improve the lives of Tennesseans.  As easy access web-site location offers individuals the chance to study current health care preventive tips, review state and national article concerning in-depth research on nutrition, as well as information on how to implement health fairs in communities across Tennessee.
