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. This two-year grant is being used to finalize, evaluate and advance the program model and enhance its sustainability.
