The core partners of Healthy Tri-County – Medical University of South Carolina, Roper St. Francis Healthcare and Trident United Way – are thrilled to release Our Health, Our Future: Tri-County Health Improvement Plan 2018-2023, the first comprehensive health improvement plan in our region that provides concrete recommendations and action steps for improving health outcomes that can be carried out by a wide range of local organizations, groups and individuals.
More than 80 volunteers representing 60 organizations invested roughly 2,300 hours in the development of the Tri-County Health Improvement Plan (TCHIP). South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control served as the technical assistance provider for the development of the plan, and will support the implementation of many identified recommendations and action steps moving forward.
Our Health, Our Future: Community Action Guide presents highlights of the more technical TCHIP, and will be helpful to individuals, civic and social groups as well as organizations that want to advocate, educate and lend support towards the execution of the TCHIP.
No single person, group or organization can independently tackle the monumental health challenges facing our region. Therefore, Healthy Tri-County and the organizations that make up the initiative call on the community to invest time, talent and treasure to build a healthier community. Collectively, we can and will make a difference!
