    Nominate a Community Hero
  • 2

People in South Carolina are community-minded and look out for each other. We are proud of our state's neighborly spirit, and it's serving us well as we fight COVID-19 together.

DHEC wants to celebrate the community heroes among us. Community heroes demonstrate gold standards in excellence to expand access to COVID-19 education, testing and vaccines in our state. These heroes are ordinary people doing remarkable things. They are community members, partners, providers, and DHEC staff across the state.

In 500 words or less, please describe what the nominee has done to enhance access to COVID-19 education, testing and/or vaccinations for fellow South Carolinians.

Please provide photos or videos that you own to help us tell this story.
