November 2017

LWK launched the “Healthy Lifestyles for Youth” initiative in November of 2017 after the coalition examined data from a CHNA conducted in April of that year, funded by the Health Services District of Kershaw County, to identify the most pressing health needs of the community. Healthy Lifestyles for Youth focuses on preventative measures to stem negative outcomes associated with diabetes, teenage sexual activity, and tobacco/vaping use among high school students ages 14-18.
