UWSW will build and participate in collaborations that will improve access to and availability of healthcare.
What does that all mean?
Wyoming is beyond rural, it is considered frontier, making access to healthcare difficult. We want people to be able to get to the doctor when needed.
How does this happen?
Our community partners in health are working to meet these goals. In addition, we have partnered with FamilyWize to provide a discount on prescription drugs, primarily for those that are uninsured.
- 14% of Wyoming residents are uninsured
- Local community town hall meetings revealed that transportation is a barrier to receiving healthcare
