Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Washtenaw County Public Health

Ypsilanti, Mich.



Serving 348,000 residents in southeastern Michigan, the agency has piloted its Prescription for Health program in four Ypsilanti health clinics to provide low-income clients with nutrition instructions and “tokens” for purchasing fresh produce at a local farmers market. Our two-year grant is being used to expand the pilot program to four additional health clinics over the next two years.
