Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust expands Healthy Places initiative to Columbus

Dr. Laura Gerald, president of the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, addresses leaders from Columbus and Bladen counties Wednesday at Whiteville's Vineland Station during the launch of the foundation’s Healthy Places NC initiative in southeastern North Carolina. Through Healthy Places NC, the trust is investing up to $100 million to improve the health of residents in the state’s rural communities. Since 2012, the initiative has targeted key health issues in seven counties. The trust is expanding Healthy Places NC to include Columbus, Bladen and Robeson counties, which consistently score poorly in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s County Health Rankings. During the kickoff, public health experts shared local data pertaining to health issues including substance misuse, adverse childhood experiences and access to care and Medicaid reform.
