Throughout the year, our blog will feature AHA volunteer stories of survival and hope. We know there are thousands of stories like these - thats why we want to say “Thanks” to all of you for giving your time and sharing your lives with us. You can’t spell CURE without U! Thank you for all you do to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. YOU’RE THE CURE!

Learn more about SHIP funding

The Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) was developed in response to the 2007 MN State Legislature’s request to develop a plan for statewide health promotion to address the rising cost of health and health care in our state. SHIP, which is an expanded version of the Steps to a HealthierMN model, will help Minnesotans live longer, better, healthier lives by reducing the burden of chronic disease.

Save the date! We'll be hosting a working conference on March 17-18 in Bloomington, Minn., for community health boards and tribal governments that plan to apply for SHIP funding.

Visit MDH's website for more information.
