Brown-Nicollet Community Health Board (CHB) implemented multiple projects after receiving funding from the Minnesota Department of Health Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP). Initiatives included working with child care centers and schools to increase physical activity, implementing policies for tobacco-free workplaces and postsecondary grounds, and establishing community gardens to improve a community's access to healthy foods. Reports describe the impact of the initiatives. Wilder Research worked with multiple SHIP grantees across the state of Minnesota.
