Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP)

The Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), an integral part of Minnesota's nation-leading 2008 health reform law, strives to help Minnesotans lead longer, healthier lives by preventing the chronic disease risk factors of tobacco use and exposure, poor nutrition and physical inactivity. SHIP seeks to create sustainable, systemic changes in schools, work sites, communities and health care organizations that make it easier for Minnesotans to incorporate healthy behaviors into their daily lives.
