The PICH grant was awarded to the Quad City Health Initiative by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Fall 2014 through the fiscal agent UnityPoint Health - Trinity. This grant has allowed QCHI and its partners to create four projects within the community to promote Eating Healthy and Moving More. To learn more about the exciting projects we are working on in the Quad Cities Area check out the PICH Grant page or "flip" through our Year One Annual Report!
The Be Healthy QC Coalition was formed in 2013 and seeks to align all sectors of our bi-state community on program, policy, systems and environmental changes in order to create a “culture of wellness” that supports healthy eating and active living. More information about this group can be found on the Be Healthy QC Coalition page.
