The Heart of New Ulm Project (USA)

The Heart of New Ulm Project (USA)The Heart of New Ulm is a project designed to reduce the number of heart attacks that occur in the New Ulm area (Minnesota) over the next 10 years. This means helping residents improve their health risks, such as physical activity, nutrition, obesity, or tobacco use, among others. The project will involve community education, medical interventions and environmental changes. The project is being led by Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a health care system, instead of the government. As a result, it will likely serve to change the way health care is viewed and delivered across the country. In other words, it could result in the entire health care system shifting its focus toward preventive care. The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation is working in close partnership with Allina and the New Ulm medical Center (NUMC) to support this project in the New Ulm Community
