LiveWell Greenville gets boost from Duke Endowment

LiveWell Greenville (LWG) announced it has received the Healthy People Healthy Carolinas grant from the Duke Endowment in partnership with Bon Secours St. Francis. The grant will further LWG’s mission “to make the healthy choice the easy choice by creating and maintaining a community that supports healthy eating and active living.” LWG is a community coalition composed of more than 100 non-profit, government, and private industry partners who work to ensure access to healthy eating and active living opportunities for all Greenville County residents. Furman, in concert with the Department of Health Sciences and the Institute for the Advancement of Community Health (IACH), is one of those partners.
