Clemson researchers have used grant funds from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to combat obesity in South Carolina since 2018, and work continues to yield positive results despite obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently, researchers and health extension agents behind the CDC High-Obesity Program have linked the outreach work of Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Bishopville, which connects 25 local churches to aid over 500 families in and around Lee County, with Foodshare SC, a nonprofit organization based in Richland County that provides affordable, fresh food boxes across the state. This collaboration has translated to thousands of pounds of fresh food reaching the tables of food insecure families across the Pee Dee.
A pair of Clemson University scientists are among the co-authors of a paper on research into using quantum dots to usher in the next generation of safer, highly efficient solar cells.
A Clemson University faculty member has earned a prestigious Spencer Foundation Grant to study how rural school leaders navigate communities to improve educational equity. According to Daniella Sutherland, assistant professor in Clemson’s College of Education, the research is the first of its kind to study this issue specifically in rural schools. Sutherland and her research team seek to understand the specific challenges rural leaders encounter and the strengths they can utilize as they try to create equitable schooling practices. They hope to aid educators in the South Carolina, West Virginia and Vermont schools they are studying and intend the lessons learned to be applied to any rural area across the country as results are finalized.
