The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) awarded Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) grants to counties and cities across Minnesota. SHIP works to build a foundation of good health for all Minnesotans. Partners in Healthy Living aims to continue this work, creating more opportunities for all communities in Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, and Pine Counties. Our mission is to foster healthier communities where all residents live, work, learn, and play. We achieve this by increasing access to nutritious foods, physical activity opportunities, and tobacco-free living. We envision communities where all members make choices that lead to the highest quality of life. We all want to be healthy, but sometimes we need a helping hand.
Thanks to Partners in Healthy Living we have...
Safer walking and biking routes to school are helping more kids get the physical activity they need to stay healthy.
More farmers’ markets mean more families have access to fruits and vegetable—the keys to good health.
More workplace wellness programs are helping employees be healthy, decreasing healthcare costs for employers.
And that’s just a start. All over our region, efforts like these are making healthy living easier.
