CHI St. Joseph's Health

SHIP

CHI St. Joseph’s Health Community Health provides local oversight of the local Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) efforts to help create healthy communities.

The SHIP grant is part of the Minnesota Department of Health’s efforts to bring about sustainable changes that make it easier for communities to choose healthy behaviors. The goal is to reduce regional health care costs associated with chronic disease management, specifically in regard to tobacco use and obesity.

SHIP encourages increased physical activities, community gardens and public access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and better workplace wellness programs.
