Introducing the Wyoming Center on Aging

The Wyoming Center on Aging (WyCOA) has been founded to serve as a resource for the state of Wyoming, including older adults, professional and family caregivers, students, and aging researchers. WyCOA seeks to be the premier source for reliable, credible information about aging, including healthy aging and healthcare conditions common in older adults.

The WyCOA website features online resources for older adults and their family care partners in the Resources Section.  Topics include: Alzheimer's Disease, Healthy Aging, and many more.

Professional caregivers will find useful information about caring for aging adults at the Wyoming Geriatric Education Center (WyGEC). WyGEC offers many online and in-person trainings throughout the state each year. Healthcare professionals are also invited to join the Wyoming Geriatric Provider Network. Learn more about this opportunity on the Healthcare Professional Section.

WyCOA also serves UW and other faculty and students. WyCOA is in the process of creating an aging research network, composed of faculty and students interested in investigating all aspects of aging. To learn more about research opportunities through WyCOA visit the Research Section.
