The Vital Aging Network, with support from HealthPartners and a Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant, has launched four community-based wellness pilots led by self-directed teams of people 50+. The pilots operate in these Minnesota communities: Alexandria, Hamline Midway in Saint Paul, Oakdale and Phillips neighborhood in Minneapolis and work to achieve these goals:

  • Increase the awareness among people 50+ in the community about opportunities for self-care and its importance.
  • Implement projects that enable older adults to make measurable changes in attitudes/practices likely to contribute to better health outcomes.
  • Increase the capacity of individuals in the pilot community to provide ongoing leadership for wellness-related initiatives.
  • Ensure that the Wellness 50+ initiative can be sustained during and after the conclusion of the three-year pilot.
