Healthy Tri-County, a multi-sector regional initiative, has launched a brand new website to educate the public on its work and invite others to join the movement.

Led by MUSC Health, Roper St. Francis Healthcare and Trident United Way, Healthy Tri-County was born out of the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment conducted by the three core partners. Healthy Tri-County was formally launched in January 2017 and is currently made up of 52 organizations ranging from healthcare, community organizations, faith-based groups and local government.

“While the Healthy Tri-County website was a collaborative effort of the core partners, Kimberley Butler-Willis, director of the Ryan White Wellness Center at Roper St. Francis Healthcare, played an integral role in developing the creative direction and building the website,” Trident United Way Director of Health Kellye McKenzie said.

Healthy Tri-County’s current primary focus is the development of the Tri-County Health Improvement Plan, which will provide a five-year roadmap for the community to improve health outcomes in our region. The plan is slated to be released in Fall 2018.
