SHIP Shape features schools in the county and region, such as East Grand Forks, who are making healthy food the easy choice for their students and staff. An integral part of Minnesota's nation-leading 2008 health reform law, SHIP strives to help Minnesotans lead longer, healthier lives by preventing the chronic disease risk factors of tobacco use and exposure, poor nutrition and physical inactivity. SHIP seeks to create sustainable, systemic changes in schools, worksites, communities and health care organizations that make it easier for Minnesotans to incorporate healthy behaviors into their daily lives.
