The award-winning Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project is a collaborative partnership of the New Ulm community, New Ulm Medical Center (part of Allina Health), and the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation. Since 2009, the entire community has been working
toward a common vision — to support a culture of wellness in the community and help people make health the easy choice where they live, learn, work and play.
Through activities, education, policies and environmental changes, people who live or work in New Ulm are supported in their efforts to get more physically active, eat more fruits and vegetables, lose weight, quit smoking, manage stress and make other healthful lifestyle
choices. Efforts involve the entire community — from health care organizations, providers and individuals, to worksites, faith-based organizations, public health, local government, and civic groups and organizations.
