IN State Representative Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) said in a recent news release, “Facing high rates of diabetes, obesity, smoking and other health issues, it’s clear our state must do more to help improve Hoosiers’ health. I am supporting legislation that would establish a new public health grant program to fund initiatives addressing our most challenging problems.”
The Indiana Department of Health would administer the program, giving preference to proposals focusing on chronic health problems such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
Jordan said, “Our health issues not only affect the wellness of Hoosiers, but also public and private health care costs, and the vitality of our economy. Through this bill, we can improve the overall quality of life for those across the state.”
