Wyoming Center on Aging


Older adults in Wyoming are independent, wise, resilient, and play important roles in communities across the state.

The University of Wyoming Center on Aging values older adults and works every day to support these neighbors, friends, and family. Through a broad range of programs and resources, the team of professionals at the Wyoming Center on Aging or WyCOA is working to optimize the health and wellbeing of Wyoming's older residents through innovative collaborations around chronic disease management, dementia support, and family and healthcare provider education. WyCOA works collaboratively with the aging network across Wyoming to responds to the needs of older Wyoming residents while honoring the legacy of our elders.
