MARIETTA — Marietta City Council approved a joint venture between WellStar Kennestone Regional Medical Center and the City of Marietta to strengthen the health of area residents. The pro-wellness campaign, dubbed “Live Well Marietta,” will kick off in September at the Marietta Farmers Market, according to Cecelia Wagner, assistant vice president of corporate and community health for WellStar.

Mayor Steve Tumlin said people have come forward in the past with ideas, but he wanted something on a large scale that would be ongoing.

Wagner will present 16 months of activities on the Square, including a “lunch and learn quarterly series” with expert talks on nutrition and sleep disorders, as well as a bi-monthly yoga classes on the Square.

The first event would include free health screenings for risk factors of heart disease and

diabetes.
