Kershaw County has been selected as a SCALE 2.0 community by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), granting the LiveWell Kershaw coalition and its members access to the leading resources and training on how to Scale-and-Spread and initiative. These resources include the ability to participate in monthly webinars and training on tools to assist in the spread of the LiveWell Kershaw activities to the rest of the county. In addition, the resources provided by IHI will support the work done through Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas.
SCALE 2.0 expands approaches to organizations seeking to accelerate their journey to improve population and community health. The initiative brings together two areas critical for sustained community transformation: changes in both community-wide practices and in key anchor institutions (e.g., health care organizations) within those communities.
