The State of Families and Children in Effingham County luncheon was all about wellness and responsibility.
“Health matters,” said Russ Toal, clinical associate professor of health policy and management of the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health of Georgia Southern University. “And it matters in many ways that people don’t think about.

The event was sponsored by Effingham County Family Connection/
