The Community Takes A Stand For Health
Throughout the United States communities have struggled with escalating medical costs, lack of health care access, and a rise in preventable illnesses. A community in Columbia, South Carolina has the highest rate of diabetes-related amputations in the country. In response to this urgent problem, Healthy Columbia is rising up together using a tool that has never been used in this context— community organizing.
We have a health screening Friday, September 5th, 2014 from 1:30pm-4:30pm at Toliver's Mane Event at 6102 North Main Street, Columbia, SC 29203. Come out for a free health check or to volunteer! Anyone is welcome!
