Prevention and Healthy Living

The Minneapolis Healthy Living Initiative works with community partners to create opportunities for everyone to eat healthy, be physically active, and live tobacco free.


Healthy Living News and Current Events

The Minneapolis Health Department has received funding from the Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) to work closely with communities, workplaces, schools and health care to increase opportunities for active living, healthy eating and avoiding commercial tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. Read more about the health department’s 2016 SHIP-funded projects here . These evidence-based strategies were developed based on recommendations and priorities provided by community partners and the department’s Community Leadership Team.
