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.

SHIP Communities Are Thriving

SHIP helps build thriving communities, creating opportunities for all people in Minnesota to live longer, healthier lives. Ninety percent of the nation’s health care costs are for people with chronic conditions, and the majority of those costs are preventable.

SHIP = local leadership, local partners and local expertise

SHIP work is directed by local community leadership teams that bring expertise and connections to the table. The complex, comprehensive nature of this work requires strong relationships, partnerships and expertise at the local level.
