COLUMBIA, S.C. - The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control's All-Health Team deadline for accepting applications for its 2013 season is February 15, the agency announced today.
"Nearly one in three high school students is overweight or obese," said Joann Moton Minder, the All-Health Team program manager, "so the All-Health Team is a creative way to reward young people who actively participate in planning and promoting activities that encourage eating healthy and being active. Developing good health habits at an early age increases the likelihood of those habits being carried into adulthood."
Minder said applications for this year's All-Health Team should be received by February 15 to be considered. As many as 12 winners will be awarded and recognized.
The All-Health Team was established in 2003 and is sponsored by Blue Cross-Blue Shield of South Carolina, WIS-TV and DHEC. For more information about becoming a part of the All-Health Team, visit http://www.sdhec.gov/allhealth or call (803)-545-4501.
