Glad to have each of you here! I grew up as a 4-H participant and am from the small rural community of McCormick, SC.

Tomiko, my Grandmother is from McCormick :)

Yup, I know McCormick. I even know the crossroads of Plum Branch quite well.

Access to the internet has been a big issue during the pandemic.
Tomiko Smalls
56:37
Access to technology has also been a big issue during the pandemic. I would also add lack of testing resources. Also DHEC has done an excellent job of creating mobile testing locations throughout SC. However, there is still a challenge with transportation and getting individuals to the testing locations.
Tomiko Smalls

Thanks for bringing out the point about cell towers.

More than 80% of farms rely on off-farm income for more than 50% of their farm family income. National statistic; long-standing. So, employment opportunities, with benefits, are very important even to farm families. Most have to commute to urban areas to find these job opportunities.

What's the picture look like in terms of provision of and access to civic spaces - the public spaces amenable to community and/or civic gatherings?
Dave Lamie
01:02:23
At the same time, our country has relied on Farm Policy as the primary means to frame federal rural policy. Many of us worked on trying to create broader frameworks back in the 90s and 90s, into this century. But, we still lack a comprehensive framework that addresses the broader needs of rural regions. We lack territorial policy. Other countries have done much better.
Tomiko Smalls
01:03:29
Also, it’s somewhat disturbing that the locations are considered as education deserts. I think the label “education desert” could be replaced with better wording that identifies the needs in those areas.
Dave Lamie
01:05:43
The electoral college favors rural regions; gives them more representation in national elections than their population levels alone would determine. Many say we should do away with the electoral college. Discuss!

Some states have Extension agents serving within Community Economic Development and related program areas. They work closely with local government, non-profits, chambers of commerce, etc. Not just agriculture.

I’m in discussions with the office of regulatory staff in Columbia about some statewide broadband policy efforts in the works.
Dave Lamie
01:23:26
I am a former board member of the National Rural Telecongress and did a fair amount of broadband planning in Virginia, Illinois, … It’s an area of work of mine from the past that I likely need to move to the front or at least middle burner.
Dave Lamie
01:23:51
If there are others at Clemson interested in joining forces…please let me know.

Thanks to the panelist and Amber for today's presentation. I have to go to my next meeting.

Great conversation and happy the South Carolina Office of Rural Health was invited, thank you! Clemson has been a great partner and we've enjoyed your presence in our conferences as well as collaborative projects. Our team is actively involved in topics addressed today (food insecurity, broadband, access to health care, and testing sites). We have an exciting Digital Economy Ecosystem project awarded through the USDA-we would be pleased to share this with you all. We hope to continue to serve as your state rural resource to further enhance your rewarding programs and mission. www.scorh.net

Very interesting conversation. About 25 years ago we developed an online rural policy forum as part of an international rural policy conference. Abingdon, Virginia. Perhaps we need a similar space to continue this conversation.
Dave Lamie

I need to go to another meeting now. Thank you!

The PO in Six Mile is the best place to know what's going on, no doubt. Thank you so much for taking this question.

Highlight Rural Communities and get the information out somehow. Let us view rural areas from our computers.

The SC Office of Rural Health hosts a weekly "Rural Outcomes" call. It's very informal -- representatives from many sectors share their challenges, projects and victories. We've had lots of collaboration in the COVID landscape.
Aynsley Hartney

As an aspiring physician who wants to serve in a rural community, how can I best prepare for the challenges that have been mentioned during this panel while finishing up my degree in Clemson and later in medical school?
Dave Lamie
01:36:52
Community Development; the journal of the Community Development Society. Also a good organization for professional development in the CD field. Multi-disciplinary.
Bridget Winston

Aynsley, you may be interested in connecting with our director of recruitment and retention at the SC Office of Rural Health. Jessica Seel - jseel@scorh.net.

Question for Ms. Parisi: You mentioned how most of your work deals with access to health services and food. Have you heard the term Food Apartheid? It is a fairly new term to me and I was not sure if it was more appropriate to use Food Desert or Food Apartheid. - RD
