Local health organization wins prestigious grant
Tunica 10 Point Coalition, Inc. was presented a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, through the Community Foundation’s Regional Health Council, a component of the Get A Life! program to prevent childhood obesity. The Coalition was one of seven organizations receiving a grant this year.
Tunica 10 Point Coalition, Inc. will continue its work through its Combating Obesity Intervention Program (COIP). In the past year, the organization has worked with the entire county and the faith-based community to provide health awareness. During its first year, 130 people participated, and coalition organizers hope to draw even more into the program during its second year.
