SC Population Health Summit

On May 20, 2016, the Alliance for a Healthier SC hosted the first ever South Carolina Population Health Summit. The Alliance used SC AHEC's South Carolina Health Occupations Outreach Learning System (SCHOOLS) to host five simultaneous meetings in different regions throughout the state. This allowed for two keynote speakers to present to all sites simultaneously, and the five sites subsequently discussed the keynotes with local panelists from each region. The SC Population Health Summit broke AHEC's record for amount of participants in a SCHOOLS program at 176 and reviews were unanimously positive! The video recordings from the two keynote speakers are available below.
