MDC Staff members Stephanie Saunders and Jenna Bryant visted Beaufort County Community College last week to review the progress made by the college as a part of the Healthy Places North Carolina initiative, a project of MDC and the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust.

The event was covered in local press, the Washington Daily News. According to the story, Saunders and Bryant "joined staff from the Institutional Research Department in walking the 1-mile fitness trail and held a focus group consisting of eight community members, staff, faculty and students while on campus. The group was excited by positive outcomes, confirming the success of the initiatives put in place over the past seven months."
