Researchers seek Sumter residents for study

The University of South Carolina Prevention Research Center is looking for Sumter County residents to share their experiences and ideas about promoting physical activity in five Sumter County communities.

Researchers are looking for ideas on the best ways to promote walking in the Rembert, Salterstown, Cherryvale, Dalzell and Broad Street areas. Participants will take part in group discussions, and their recommendations will be used to develop a walking program specifically for Sumter County. Participants must be 18 and older, and they do not have to be physically active to be part of the group. Participants can receive up to $30 for taking part in the group discussions.

If interested, call Lili Stoisor-Olsson toll-free at (866) 363-8906.
