The establishment of the Wyoming Center on Aging (WyCOA) is a result of the efforts of the staff, leadership, and Advisory Council to the Wyoming Geriatric Education Center and the College of Health Sciences at the University of Wyoming. Several years were spent designing, planning, and developing this new center. The need for a Wyoming Center on Aging is great. Wyoming is one of the most rapidly aging states, and by 2030 will be the state with the highest concentration of individuals over 85. The benefits of a Center on Aging include connecting Wyoming residents, researchers, service providers, and educators, as well as fostering innovative aging research, training care providers, disseminating evidence-based practices, and serving as a resource for older adults and their family caregivers. *WyGEC (Wyoming Geriatric Education Center) is now supported by the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) within the Wyoming Center on Aging.
