The Community Action team develops relationships and enhances collaboration with local and state-level community partners to build a healthy community. They support evidence-based interventions and evaluation of partner initiatives to demonstrate community impact and research and identify relevant community health issues to inform practice.
The team’s collaborative work has contributed to Greenville County receiving the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize in 2020. The Culture of Health Prize recognizes communities that advance equitable access to housing, education, workforce development, transportation, and health care in the region. The team is also part of a Greenville coalition to receive the BUILD Health Challenge award to reduce racial disparities in youth obesity in the White Horse Road corridor of Greenville.
