Working in the Darlington County community, alongside the Darlington County Coordinating Council with its many partners, is a worthwhile experience.

The council has been serving the community for many years. Going to the next step with improving health from all walks of life, is what is at the heart of this collaborative.

Though working through a pandemic, as all of us have, the council has never lost sight of its truest purpose, and that is…serving the county in the highest ways possible.
