SHIP coordinators and community health strategists in Kandiyohi County.

Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP). SHIP supports community driven solutions to expand opportunities for active living, healthy eating and tobacco free living. In 2008, MN lawmakers recognized that controlling health care costs would require more than just changing medical care-additional investments in prevention were needed. With bipartisan support in the legislature, MN passed a groundbreaking health reform law. A key component of that reform was to create SHIP, which invests in preventing chronic diseases before they start.
