Healthy South Carolina Initiative: Sumter County

 

We are proud to announce that the Rembert Area Community Coalition (RACC) has received
funding from the Healthy South Carolina Initiative (HSCI) to help make Sumter
County a healthier place for all who live, work and play here. We know that without action, chronic disease in our communities will continue to impact early childhood development,
academic success, and workplace productivity. Based on the 2013 County Health Rankings
compiled annually by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Population Health
Institute at the University of Wisconsin, Sumter County is ranked 19th
(of 46) in health outcomes and 24th (of 46) in health factors.

 

RACC is seeking to engage key partners in developing plans
to create policies, systems and environments in our communities to make living
well easier. This effort could result in the development of safe places to walk
and bike, access to healthy foods and recreation areas, and other positive
initiatives. We understand that the residents of Sumter County desire a community
that supports their health and quality of life—one that enables them to live
well. The goal of these plans is to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
