Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice

Who We Are

After attending the 2008 South Carolina Obesity Prevention Summit, staff at KershawHealth’s Community Outreach and SC DHEC-Region 4 put their heads together and developed a plan to bring different community stakeholders together.  The goal was to get to the bottom of the first and second leading causes of death in Kershaw County: cancer and heart disease. 

In 2008, KershawHealth received a seed grant from Eat Smart, Move More SC to develop a local coalition to assess the policies and environments in Kershaw County that affect people’s daily choices.  From that grant, a collaborative effort has taken root and grown. 

In 2009 we officially became Eat Smart, Move More… Kershaw County.  Because of the relationship building and common focus on making Kershaw County a better place to live, the group has had many exciting accomplishments. 

The VISION of Eat Smart, Move More… Kershaw County is to have a community in which there are mixed use neighborhoods focused on health, wellness and sustainable living.

The MISSION of Eat Smart, Move More… Kershaw County is to coordinate collaborative and sustainable efforts to support healthy eating and active living where Kershaw County residents live, learn, work and play.
