Clayton County Clayton County is a suburban community, south of downtown Atlanta. It has a relaxed and neighborly feel like a small town, but with all the amenities of a major metropolitan area. It boasts an attractive lifestyle, economic and business opportunities and a very ethnically diverse population. With numerous excellent health care facilities, Clayton County continues to work towards making the county a thriving place where citizens can live, work and play. HealthMPowers’ work supports this community by (1) improving access to fruits and vegetables, (2) providing nutrition education and (3) implementing the “Be a Health Hero- EAT, DRINK, MOVE” social marketing campaign.
