In a state ranked 49th in obesity and 48th in overall healthiness, preventive health measures are an important part of health promotion efforts. These efforts have been recognized as a cost-effective way to identify and treat preventable health problems like diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and heart disease before they develop or worsen. Innovative medical research grants are periodically considered, primarily initiated by the Foundation.

Our priorities:

• Efforts to promote healthy eating and active communities
• Preventive health measures
• Programs that provide mental health and counseling services, especially to the underserved
