Eat Smart Move More Spartanburg, (ESMM) is continuing to promote wellness into 2017. On Feb 6 we held our first general meeting since the transition from the Spartanburg Childhood Obesity Taskforce. The meeting was attended by representatives of 15 organizations, members of the public, and volunteers. The topic was Collective Impact, a model of collaboration that leverages the common goals of organizations using methods that maximize effectiveness. A big thank you to Mary Black Health System for hosting our meetings this year in the lower level of the Hugh R. Black Pavilion. The next meeting will be on April 3rd.
