How does SHIP work? With SHIP, communities are working together to make healthy living easier.
The problem is, that sometimes healthy living is not so easy.
We may resolve to eat better, but sometimes good food is just not available.
Its easy to say get more physical activity, but often its a challenge.
It can be hard to avoid second-hand smoke, and sometimes we need help if we want to quit.
Therefore, SHIP is about giving people a helping hand.
SHIP works with businesses, schools, health care, and with communities to make healthy food more available, physical activity easier to get, and smoke-free spaces the norm.
