What will I do?

Throughout this 12-week online program, you will learn about activity, healthy eating, and some of the natural areas of South Carolina along the Palmetto Trail. This program includes a weekly step goal, weekly interactions with a Rural Health and Nutrition Agent or EFNEP Educator, a private Facebook group to connect with and get support from others in the program, and health education videos. Meet your step goals each week to virtually walk the Palmetto Trail, which spans 500 miles across South Carolina.
