health and wellness priority group
Goal: LARIMER COUNTY RESIDENTS ARE ABLE TO ENJOY OPTIMAL EMOTIONAL, PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL HEALTH AS THEY AGE.
SELF-DIRECTED VOLUNTEER TEAMS HAVE COMPLETED SEVERAL PROJECTS AIMED AT RAISING AWARENESS OF ISSUES FACED BY LOCAL SENIORS. PLANS FOR FUTURE PROJECTS ARE UNDERWAY. READ MORE ON OUR PROJECTS PAGE.
Our Priority Group meets bi-monthly to discuss what's happening around issues related to the health and wellness of older adults in Larimer County. From these discussions we look for opportunities to partner with other organizations or to work on our own projects that promote health and wellness. We use grassroots Self Directed Volunteer Teams (SDVT) to accomplish specific project objectives.
Our diverse group includes community members, representatives from local businesses providing aging services, staff from government and non profit organizations, and faculty from the CSU Department of Human Development and Family Studies and related programs.
