What is the H.E.A.R.T. Initiative?
The Health Extension: Advocacy, Research, and Teaching Initiative, also known as H.E.A.R.T is a new pilot initiative through Utah State University Extension. This cutting-edge, 4-year pilot program is aligned with National Cooperative Extension’s recently instituted essential focus area in health and wellness. H.E.A.R.T. serves as a model of how Extension can join community partners to better address the health and wellness needs in our state. H.E.A.R.T. brings unique academic resources into the community, partnering locally and nationally to address the opioid epidemic and other pressing public health issues.
