County Connections: SHIP Mower County

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) of Mower County is delighted to once again partner with Mower Refreshed to bring you County Connections. The goal of SHIP is to help Minnesotans live healthier lives by preventing risk factors that lead to chronic disease. Program funding is through the Minnesota Department of Health and works to prevent chronic disease by using strategies that have demonstrated effectiveness based on research and proven best practices. As the new Community Health Specialist and SHIP Coordinator for Mower County, my role is to partner with organizations to increase access to healthy foods, promote active living and reduce tobacco exposure.
