Partnership for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management in Western Wisconsin

This project seeks to impact morbidity and mortality from chronic disease through increased disease prevention and health promotion activities for underserved communities in western Wisconsin. The project area includes four counties: La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau, and Vernon. New partnerships will be formed to improve access to preventive health services for people of all ages living in these rural areas who are uninsured or underinsured.
