Mississippi State University Extension Service recognizes that local citizens can and are doing much to impact health in their communities. Both county and state health coalitions are actively working toward improving health conditions. These coalitions are organizations made up of diverse groups of individuals who are interested in seeking solutions to common health problems or concerns. MSU Extension Service is currently partnering with community-based coalitions in 56 of the state's 82 counties. In addition, state coalitions are seeking to address issues of access, cancer control, and chronic disease. By working together, we can raise Mississippi's health status to a new level.
Mississippi State is launching a comprehensive initiative to help Mississippians battle obesity with a $5.5 million grant awarded to MSU Extension by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
