Healthy Aging in Rural Towns (HeART)

The Healthy Aging in Rural Towns (HeART) project seeks to support older adults to thrive in their rural communities as they age in place, with the goal of enabling older adults to live comfortably in their homes in rural communities. The project seeks to leverage the power of rural areas, while combating rural issues like a lack of health providers, scarce public transportation, and social isolation.


For this project, our office collaborated with the Center for Aging Research and Education (CARE) at the UW School of Nursing, and stakeholders in the three rural communities: Iowa County, Langlade County, and the City of Waupun.
