Community: We encourage creative ideas and are interested in projects that promote long-lasting and sustainable change. One way to encourage active transportation, for instance, is to increase the amount of bike racks in communities. Increasing bike racks encourages people to ride their bikes and include more physical activity in their daily routines. Another way to stimulate healthy communities is through
community gardens. If you are interested in starting a garden in your area, SHIP is able to help.

Worksite Wellness: Wellness in the worksite is important for not only the employees, but the employer as well. Comprehensive worksite wellness programs have been estimated to return from $3 to $6 for every $1 spent. Focusing on the areas of healthy eating, physical activity, reducing tobacco use/exposure
and offering breastfeeding support are great ways to support employees’ health at work.
