Healthy South Carolina
AIR DATE: September 26, 2013
Obesity can be the catalyst of many serious diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, which have major impact on the overall health of South Carolinians and the economy. We look at programs throughout the state that are trying to decrease obesity in our citizens, in turn making them healthier. We sit down with Director of DHEC, Catherine Templeton, on why this is such an important issue and what her agency is doing to help.
