Included in the bill is $250,000 for the Heart of New Ulm project, an experiment in identifying residents who are at risk of heart attacks and instituting a community plan to get residents to adopt more healthy lifestyles. It’s part of a $100 million initiative by Allina Hospitals and Clinics that aims to create a template for heart attack prevention in other communities. Read the story at mankatofreepress.com.
