Evidence-based programs (EBPs) offer proven ways to promote health and prevent disease. They are based on research and provide documented health benefits, so you can be confident they work. Older adults who participate in EBPs can lower their risk of chronic diseases and falls. EBPs are based on rigorous study of the effects of the programs and demonstrate reliable and consistently positive health changes.
Evidence-based programs are offered by VINE at the Adult Community Center and in locations throughout the area in collaboration with the MN River Area Agency on Aging, the MN Department of Health, and Blue Earth County SHIP.
