Greetings — and
Sumter County on the Move!
Sumter County On The Move (SCOTM!), a research
study conducted by the Prevention Research Center at the University
of South Carolina, Columbia, in partnership with Sumter County
Active Lifestyles, is almost complete. Many participants in this
12-month, group-based walking program, developed to help Sumter
County residents become more active, report that they have become
more physically active. For some, the results are remarkable— lower blood pressure,
reduction of medication(s), weight loss and better mental health.
Others, seeking to maintain their health status have done just
that, remained the same. Participants who did not see any health
improvements have resources to help them “get on the move” when
they are ready.
The last mini-workshop, Eating for a Healthy
Life, is open to the public on Thursday, June 5, from 5:30-6:30pm.
It will be held at the Sumter County Recreation and Parks Department,
155 Haynsworth Street. You do not have to be preregistered, but
it is helpful. To preregister, click below on “Click Here
to Reserve your Spot in an Upcoming Session!”
Though Sumter County On The Move! is no longer enrolling study
participants, you can find a lot of information, resources and
tools about becoming more active and creating a healthier lifestyle
