What is the Inclusive Health Coalition? 

The Inclusive Health Coalition is creating local level sustainability that promotes community and individual behavior change focusing on leadership and planning strategies which support community health inclusion. To create sustainability, the SC Inclusive Health Coalition is working to make SNAP-ED programs accessible, educate instructors from SNAP-ED and Drew Well Center, and create more community opportunities for health and wellness.
