Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP)

SHIP is a statewide health initiative aimed at improving the overall health of parents, children, and the whole community by increasing physical activity, decreasing obesity, and decreasing tobacco use and smoke exposure.

As part of this effort, each county awarded funding is responsible for addressing 9 strategy areas in their community.  The Live Wright program was launched in 2009 and a Community Leadership Team was formed to identify, facilitate, and implement evidence-based strategies and interventions to help Wright County citizens live longer, healthier lives.
