Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP)

SHIP works to prevent disease before it starts by helping create healthier communities that support individuals seeking to make healthy choices in their daily lives. 

SHIP helps make healthier choices easier.

Improving Health - SHIP is about creating good health for parents, kids and the whole community by decreasing obesity and reducing the number of people who use tobacco and are exposed to tobacco smoke.
  • Two out of every three Minnesotans are overweight or obese—caused by insufficient physical activity and unhealthy eating—increasing risk for heart disease and diabetes, among other chronic illnesses.
  • Meanwhile, over one in six Minnesotans still smoke, leading to cancer, heart disease and more.
  • Obesity and tobacco use and exposure are the two leading causes of death.

For all our sakes, we can and must do better.
 SHIP works in the following four settings:
        1)  Schools
        2)  Workplaces
        3)  Community
        4)  Health Care.
