South Carolina Tracking Program


The South Carolina Tracking Program’s mission is to provide a network of integrated health and environmental data to reduce the burden of environmental health conditions on South Carolinians and their families. The program aims to offer useful and updated data and information on environmental health effects, hazards, and exposures to promote public health action, giving special attention to groups that have been marginalized.
