Conquering Cancer in Franklin County

About This Grant:

Healthy Community Coalition (HHC) is known for creating innovative ways to reach residents in this low-socioeconomic rural area. Former programs HCC has created have been used as models in other areas of the state and nationally. HCC continually monitors and implements ways to reach residents. Tested and proven strategies used to develop and promote a system to support well water safety practices, increased colon cancer screening rates, increased fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity in this community will be able to be replicated in other rural communities.
