Healthy Hoosiers Foundation Launched Today

The Indiana State Department of Health launched the Healthy Hoosiers Foundation today as an innovative way to fund programs designed to help Indiana residents lead healthier lives. The Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was established as a result of legislation passed by the Indiana General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Mike Pence. It will provide funding for initiatives at the Indiana State Department of Health, such as those designed to reduce infant mortality, increase childhood immunizations and reduce obesity and smoking rates.
