Missouri Institute on Minority Aging
The Missouri Institute on Minority Aging (MIMA) is a forum to address health issues and provide solutions applicable to underserved senior citizens of Missouri. MIMA includes educational presentations, which cover a variety of topics including chronic disease self-management, strategies for the delivery of healthcare information and programs and current research and data on health issues impacting older, underserved individuals.
Since 1995, the MIMA has provided public and private agency personnel and caregivers with a forum to express and share ideas about delivering services and improving health care for minority elderly people. If you are a provider or caregiver, or someone who cares about issues affecting the minority elderly, you don't want to miss this. MIMA is administered by the Lincoln University Cooperative Extension Paula J. Carter Center on Minority Health and Aging.
