National Association of Counties: Spartanburg County SC Lands RWJF Culture of Health Prize

Announcement

By Andrew Whitacre, National Association of Counties County News

Spartanburg County, S.C. is the recipient of a 2015 Culture of Health award presented by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) as part of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program. The prize recognizes communities that have made significant progress towards building a Culture of Health with a $25,000 cash award and promotion of their story with communities around the country. Spartanburg County, located in Upstate South Carolina, is a community long plagued by mill closings that have affected the health and wealth of its residents. Yet through its cross-sector approach, the county has made great strides by investing in all aspects of the community to create better health for its residents. “The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize was not only further confirmation that our collective efforts are making a difference, it was an opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment to improving health outcomes in Spartanburg County,” said Spartanburg County Council Chairman Jeff Horton. “We understand the link between improving health outcomes and rising economic outcomes, and we have the right team in place to achieve what are some very ambitious goals.”
