Cottonwood, Jackson, Redwood, and Renville counties were awarded a Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) grant to employ evidence-based strategies to make policy, systems, and environmental change in schools, communities, worksites, and health care systems. Reports describe the impact of the initiatives on nutrition, physical activity, and health. Wilder Research worked with multiple SHIP grantees across the state of Minnesota.
Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As one of the nation’s largest nonprofit research and evaluation groups, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
