WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Health and agriculture officials in South Carolina have scheduled a discussion on ways to combat obesity.
On Wednesday, the Department of Health and Environmental Control and state Department of Agriculture are hosting a healthy lunch at the State Farmers Market.
Organizers say they will unveil an obesity action plan, which will focus on both long-term and short-term strategies to cut down on South Carolina's obesity rate. The plan focuses on four categories: community, worksites, health care and children.
Attendees at the lunch include DHEC director Catherine Templeton and Agriculture Commissioner Hugh Weathers.
