Voices of Diversity

Many people believe poetry is relegated solely to academics or to those possessing a specific artistic disposition.  But because everyone has a story to tell, the Voices of Diversity team is convinced anyone can become a poet. Through the writing and telling of our own unique stories, we can better know and understand ourselves, and others in our community.  

Walking with the Doc

The GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 21-mile multi-use trail that extends from Greenville to Travelers Rest. The beauty of the trail is that it affords all residents – no matter their age, race, or athletic ability – the opportunity to get fit and be active. However, research shows that less than 10% of Swamp Rabbit Trail users are non-white. This is especially troubling given that physical inactivity is a leading cause of chronic diseases like heart disease, which minorities are already at greater risk of developing.
