Online Resource Center

The WyCOA Online Resource Center is a central source for current aging related sources. The most commonly used web sites are listed below under Quick Links. The index in the column on the left indicate the subject categories of most relevance to the WyGEC initiatives. This is not intended to be a comprehensive directory of aging related topics.

Some selected topics will have a PubMed filtered search which will provide a current list of articles with free full text available. As an example, see the link below:


The Portal of Geriatric Online Education (POGOe) is a free public repository of a growing collection of geriatric educational materials in various e-learning formats, including lectures, exercises, virtual patients, case-based discussions, simulations, as well as links to other resources.

Subject Guide of resources on aging topics for UW students, faculty and staff and health care professionals in the state of Wyoming.

Survey conducted by AARP and WyGEC in 2009 to determine "if Wyoming residents age 50 and over are able to access adequate information to make adequate decisions, whether information from outside sources is filling the gap left by reduced face-to-face time with physicians, and how a person's health literacy impacts their health care experience."


New MMCO Resource Guides Available

The CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO) has three new resource guides intended to support providers and health plans serving older adults and caregivers.  An estimated four to five million older adults live with dementia in the United States.  Caring for these individuals can present unique challenges to both caregivers and healthcare professionals. These two resource guides, one created for caregivers and the other for healthcare professionals, include training and toolkits, fact sheets, publications, and information resources from various organizations and health plans.
