Hundreds of healthy eating and active living specialists and policy leaders from across South Carolina gather at the Leadership Summit for Healthy Communities to improve the lives and health of all residents. It’s is the only statewide conference that unites healthy eating and active living specialists and decision makers from across the state. Through best practices and information exchange, we’re building South Carolina’s leaders in rural and urban areas to improve health outcomes by inspiring action.

The Leadership Summit for Healthy Communities provides networking opportunities with community partners and local decision-makers and promotes successful, evidence-based healthy eating, active living initiatives. We are driven by a desire to create communities where everyone has access to healthy, affordable foods and safe places to be active. This happens through initiatives and policies that create lasting changes where people live, learn, work, play, and pray.
