Public Health Well and Wise program recognized as Program of Excellence

Jan. 7, 2015 – Eagle County Public Health and Environment’s Well and Wise program has been recognized as a Program of Excellence by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Well and Wise is a falls prevention and chronic disease self-management program for adults 55 and over in Eagle, Garfield and Pitkin counties. With support from the Colorado Health Foundation, Eagle County Public Health and the Consortium for Older Adult Wellness have trained local advocates in the evidence-based classes of Matter of Balance, N’ Balance and Tai Chi for Health.

According to Eagle County Public Health and Environment Director Jennifer Ludwig, the goal of this program is to improve health outcomes for seniors in the three-county region by improving balance and decreasing fall-related injuries through falls prevention classes and education on how best to manage chronic conditions. “This leads to the ultimate goal of helping our older adults independently age in place for as long as they wish to do so,” said Ludwig.
