In 2014, the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) awarded Community Wellness Grant (CWG) funding to 17 states to build on current work to prevent and better manage obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, while reducing health disparities. Minnesota was one of the 17 states chosen to receive this CDC grant and PartnerSHIP 4 Health (a community and public health collaborative serving the West-Central Minnesota Counties of Becker, Clay, Otter Tail and Wilkin) is one of four Minnesota grantee communities. PartnerSHIP 4 Health partners with schools, communities, worksites, and healthcare to address obesity, physical activity, nutrition, tobacco-free living, prediabetes, and hypertension. This webinar focuses on the PartnerSHIP 4 Health I Can Prevent Diabetes Program that utilizes community partnerships to address health disparities.
