The Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness began operations in April 2005. The Coalition is committed to providing medical and primary health services at Bassett Family Practice- our Federally Qualified Health Center and to promoting health, reducing health risk factors and increasing access to medical services, primarily for the uninsured and underserved in the Martinsville Henry County area.

The Coalition offers medication assistance, chronic disease self management, aerobics and other fitness classes and care coordination services to its patients and local residents. In 2010, the Coalition began GetFit Dan River in order to expand its healthy lifestyles and obesity reduction activities to Danville and Pittsylvania County.
