January 29, 2013

From fox11.online.com: “EMS project receives $20,000 grant” — SHAWANO COUNTY – A nearly $20,000 grant is aimed at improving the health of older patients in rural communities.

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Shawano Ambulance Service were awarded the funds to train emergency responders.

The goal of the project is to help aging adults understand their key risk factors and make sure they are receiving the proper care.

The hope is that the model developed in Shawano County can be used in other locations throughout the state.

The funding for the project comes from the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
