Congratulations to our Environmental Quality Control team, Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity & Obesity, and Creative Services for winning two South Carolina State Library Notable State Documents Awards.
Team DHEC was acknowledged for its work on two documents: Indoor Mold After a Severe Weather Event and South Carolina Healthy Comprehensive Planning Project.
The indoor mold document is an online topical document on indoor mold after the 2015 severe flooding and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. It is an easy-to-read guide on the potential health risks of exposure to indoor mold on certain populations, such as children younger than 12 or people with a weakened immune system.
Kudos to Fran Marshall, Lawra Boyce and Rhonda Thompson for accepting the award and to Cristi Horne, the designer.
The S.C. Healthy Comprehensive Planning Project supports county comprehensive plans that promote healthy eating and active living benefits through community planning statewide.
Kudos to Teresa Hill, Kelly Kavanaugh, and Lori Phillips for accepting the award and to Josh Laney, the designer.
The South Carolina State Library’s Notable State Documents List Award is given out annually. It is meant to call attention to the most informative documents released by state agencies each year.
DHEC is proud to be one of several agencies recognized not once but twice.
