UWM Nursing Students Collaborate with COPE

COPE was presented with a report from the “Population Health Practicum” class at UWMilwaukee’s College of Nursing on April 28. The students, led by Nursing Clinical Instructor Gina Welch, created a Community Health Assessment comparing two zip codes — one from Ozaukee County and one from Milwaukee County — an extensive list of resources and an evaluation of the barriers to mental health resources. We are so thankful for this partnership and look forward to working with these thoughtful, caring students in the future. Special thanks to Julie Upstill, public health educator with Washington Ozaukee Public Health for connecting COPE to this group!
