Public Health Staff Recognition Award Recipients
Jennifer Garrett, RN, BSN, CPN, CSN
School Nurse Supervisor
Macon County Public Health Center, Franklin
School health nurse supervisor Jennifer Garrett has been known to take on the persona of Princess Leah and effect a Yoda voice for the "Tar Wars" tobacco prevention program - anything to get a student's attention so she can deliver her "don't smoke" message. She has organized health fairs to screen students for vision, weight and other issues, and encouraged annual body mass index measurements for all students to address childhood obesity issues. This resulted in programs like low-fat milk campaigns, parent nutrition surveys and healthy rewards snack initiatives.
