According to Stephen L. Firsing III, PhD, MPA. Assistant Professor of Public Health, College of Science, "The first time I attended the Campus and Community Research Collaborative I met representatives from Tidelands Health; that conversation turned into a service learning project for my students. My relationship with Tidelands Health quickly grew into a collaborative partnership with representatives from the South Carolina Lt. Governor's Office on Aging and the Department of Health and Environmental Control. Since then, that partnership has yielded five grant proposals (three funded projects) in three years. In other words, meeting people at the Campus and Community Research Collaborative has been instrumental in me developing my professional networks and scholarly research agenda at Coastal Carolina University."
