Services Provided Include: 

PHYSICAL DIMENSION

The Veterans’ Aquatic Rehabilitation Fund allows physical therapists, rehab specialists, and other specialists to help veterans perform and excel in physical activities that include physical therapy, rehab, aerobic fitness, endurance and strength training, cardiovascular health, healthy body composition, and flexibility. This fund will help to deliver the best healthcare to veterans through physical therapy, therapeutic exercise, nutrition, and rehab training. Veterans that want to become more mobile, to perform physical therapy, and to walk again can with the use of a medical rehabilitation clinic and therapeutic exercise facility that utilizes all of the benefits of private, warm water therapy pools and advanced rehab equipment (underwater treadmills, underwater bicycles, and underwater parallel bars, etc).

It is a statewide educational organization, funded by federal, state and local governments, that brings research-based information about agriculture, family and consumer sciences, and resource development to the people of Tennessee where they live and work.

Because Extension emphasizes helping people improve their livelihood where they are located, most Tennesseans have contact with UT Extension through their local county Extension agents found in each of the 95 counties. Extension agents are supported by area and state faculty as well as by the educational and research resources and activities of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 74 land-grant universities, and 3,150 county units throughout the nation. The stated mission of the system is to help people improve their lives through an educational process that uses scientific knowledge to address issues and needs.

They provide information on a variety of subjects, ranging from landscaping to nutrition, from animal health to family money management. These programs are available to all county residents. Extension also gives special attention to youth.


Challenges facing Tennessee’s young people are greater than ever before. Extension’s 4-H youth development program helps youth from 9 to 19 develop self-esteem, leadership and citizenship skills, and gain knowledge in a wide range of subjects. From health to public speaking, from wildlife to photography, 4-H brings tomorrow’s world to today’s youth and encourages advanced education.
