Kershaw County is a Scale 2.0 Community!

Several members of our team had the opportunity to once again collaborate with communities across the nation on community transformation work as a SCALE 2.0 community with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. After several days of training, story telling, and idea exchange in El Dorado, Puerto Rico, we are back in Kershaw County and establishing next steps. We are inspired by the transformative work of our fellow SCALErs and the mindset shifts that have already occurred in our community. 💡

We invite you to join us on our next endeavor of completing a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) that will identify health priorities for Kershaw County, along with established workgroups and measurement plans for each. Our kickoff meeting will take place on March 27, 2019. For more information, send us a message or email
