Rembert Area Community Coalition

Increasing physical activity can be as easy as motivating a group of friends to walk together.
Rembert Area Community Coalition has received a public health grant to fight obesity and prevent tobacco use in Sumter County.
USC is seeking more Sumter County residents for their group-based walking intervention study.
With a $5,000 grant from ESMMSC, Sumter County Active Lifestyles (SCAL) conducted a pilot project in predominately lower-income, African-American areas of Sumter and tested whether the availability and activity of neighborhood walking groups would get residents to walk more for exercise and better health.
