We kicked off a Health Improvement Plan for Kershaw County on Wednesday, March 27th, 2019. Residents and leaders worked together to determine what top three health priorities should be addressed over the next three years. After completing a data walk and table discussion for each of the seven potential topics, the group determined Access to Care, Mental Health, and Obesity should be top of mind moving forward. Individuals signed up for workgroups that will take a deeper dive into each of these topics to create actionable steps, along with specific measures for implementation. Follow along on this journey to health improvement for Kershaw County. If you would like to be involved, send us a message!
Special thanks to our core team facilitators for the day: Breanna Grant, Representative Laurie Funderburk, Laurey Carpenter, Sallie Harrell, Susan Witkowski, Tina Griggs, and Linda Pekuri.
