Altru Health System is teaming up with several partners in the community to try to improve people's health locally.

The group will do an assessment to see what is needed in the Grand Forks area when it comes to health and fitness for the Health Improvement Initiative. Health officials have already heard some concerns in the community about childhood obesity so over the next year health and city officials will work together to find and address facilities and programs needed.

Altru is working with public health, the park district, fire department and police department on this initiative.
