Spring 2016

The Institute for Child Success will use a three-year grant to complete a landscape study on the current protective services of Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) in South Carolina.

Medical University of South Carolina

Spring 2016

Each year in South Carolina around 2,000 children receive a burn injury. The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has been awarded a two-year grant to develop a burn education and prevention phone app. This app will educate caregivers on the burn healing process, increase access to medical care for burned children and teach users about burn injury prevention.

South Carolina Pharmacy Foundation, Inc.

Spring 2016

South Carolina Pharmacy Foundation Inc. will address opioid abuse in South Carolina through a two-year grant. Opioids are medicines prescribed to relieve pain.

The organization will also raise public awareness of this issue through social media to reduce the number of opioid-related deaths.

The University of South Carolina Center for Colon Cancer Research

Spring 2016

The University of South Carolina (USC) Center for Colon Cancer Research (CCCR) has made an impact across the state by providing increased access to colorectal screenings for the medically underserved and uninsured. CCCR was awarded a two-year grant to introduce fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) in remote counties that they do not currently serve. The National Cancer Institute found these unserved counties experience a 20 percent higher mortality rate from colorectal cancer than the rest of the state. CCCR seeks to address this through increased screening and early detection of an additional 375 patients. Since FIT can be done at home, more people can be screened, reducing the occurrence and mortality of colorectal cancer.
