This year’s keynote presentation is on lessons learned from the Hearts Beat Back initiative through the Hearts of New Ulm Project. Hearts Beat Back: The Hearts of New Ulm Project, began in 2009 with an overall goal to help reduce heart attacks in the rural community of New Ulm, MN. The award-winning project has succeeded as a result of a strong commitment to improving the health of individuals, while also ensuring the places they live, learn, work, and play support and promote healthy choices.
