What we do
Good health is created where we live, work, learn and play. Public Health works with partners in the community, schools, child care, healthcare and workplaces in order to create a culture of health that supports and promotes healthy living by making healthy choices easier.
Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP)
This work is supported by funding through the Minnesota Department of Health's Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), which is creating healthier communities across Minnesota by expanding opportunities for active living, healthy eating and tobacco-free living.
SHIP is designed to improve health by reducing the risk factors that contribute to chronic disease, thereby reducing health care costs.
Read about SHIP on the Minnesota Department of Health's website.
