Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP)

The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) supports community-driven solutions to expand opportunities for active living, healthy eating and commercial tobacco-free living, helping all people in Minnesota prevent chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

Ninety percent of the nation’s health care costs are for people with chronic conditions, and the majority of those costs are preventable.
