The Cobb County Chamber of Commerce recognized Kennesaw Councilmember Cris Eaton-Welsh with its Health Hero Award for her significant positive impact on the health of the Cobb community at its First Monday Breakfast in February.
Welsh, who is also a chiropractor and owner of Eaton Chiropractic, was cited for implementing several Kennesaw community programs to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle. These include Fit City Kennesaw, the Grand Prix 5K race series, and the development of Swift-Cantrell Park. The nomination described her determination and willingness to serve, which set her apart as a leader and community activist. Her influence extends far into the community through quality patient care, innovative programs, support of Leadership Cobb Health programs, and support of community recreation services.
