Did you know that South Carolina ranks 43rd in the nation in health? Healthy Tri-County has launched Find Your Fit, a healthy lifestyle campaign and we need YOU!
Visit healthytricounty.com to take the Find Your Fit pledge and make changes to improve health outcomes in your lives and the lives of your family and friends. Find Your Fit is about more than just eating healthy and exercising; Find Your Fit has identified five focus areas and invites you to commit to working on one or multiple areas:
- Access to Care (refers to access to health insurance, transportation to doctor's appts, etc.)
- Behavioral Health
- Clinical Preventative Services (i.e. routine screenings, immunizations and checkups)
- Maternal, Infant and Child Health
- Obesity, Nutrition and Physical Activity
Once you sign the pledge, download a 'Take Action Guide' full of suggestions for how YOU can improve your health and the health of your friends and families. Share that you've signed the pledge on social media using #FindYourFitHTC and ask your friends and family to join you. Then share your progress over the next six months and continue to use the hashtag - it may even result in winning some great Find Your Fit swag for you!
Healthy Tri-County is a health initiative that was formed in January 2017 by MUSC Health, Roper St. Francis Healthcare and Trident United Way to explore new ways of improving health outcomes in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. Now boasting 67 formal member organizations from nonprofit, government and business sectors, Healthy Tri-County published the first region-specific health improvement plan for the Tri-County area. The initiative launched Find Your Fit to encourage residents to put the plan into action.
