The Eat Smart, Move More group is still very much in the organizational stages but they are hoping to be in the implementation stage in the next few months or so.
The meeting is part of a statewide movement to get people in their communities to maintain or achieve a good overall health.
The group meets every month and just had a meeting Thursday in which a few teams were chosen to help direct and change the following areas: tobacco use, healthier eating or more moving.
Currently, the teams and group overall are looking at assessment tools and initiatives to bring about a healthier county. Also, people are still encouraged to get involved if they want to.
The group meets once a month and groups have been formed around the three areas mentioned earlier.
The group has already had a survey sent out to community members with results being sent out after last month’s meeting.
The teams meet to talk about their respective areas and they are looking to moving as quickly as possible to get Newberry County healthier.

The Newberry group is looking to setting up a website and possible Facebook page.
