Loretto is a small community in Lawrence County, Tenn, located in the South Central region of the state. This area has many small, isolated communities where, at the time, residents had to drive long distances for care with little access to emergency services. In 1983, the Coalition worked with Loretto Senior Citizens to help develop programs that would meet the needs of the elderly in the southern part of Lawrence County. A health fair was held at a school in Loretto at the end of July that summer, where 290 patients were seen by appointment in 1 week.
