Gunn: LiveWell Kershaw

Partnerships are powerful, and I can think of few better examples than LiveWell Kershaw. This collaboration connects KershawHealth, the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina, the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Access Kershaw, and a host of other local agencies in an innovative initiative to make Kershaw County the healthiest county in South Carolina, and to become a model for other communities across South Carolina and the nation. It's a huge goal, but one worthy of the pursuit.
