About WyCOA

The Wyoming Center on Aging (WyCOA)

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.

Our Mission: The mission of the Wyoming Center is to optimize the health and wellbeing of Wyoming's older residents and their caregivers through interagency partnerships, basic and applied research, community education, and clinical training and services.

Our Vision: The Wyoming Center on Aging is a visionary and innovative collaboration that proactively responds to the needs of older Wyoming residents while harnessing the strengths of our communities and the honoring the legacy of our elders.

Future Development: We will continue to develop this center through fundraising activities and secured program grants to bring additional tried-and-true as well as innovative aging services to Wyoming. Donations will be a vital source of support as WyCOA continues to develop.
