1. Thriving in Place - UMFK Nursing Students Gain Real World Experience

Out of all fifty states in America, Maine is the state with the oldest population. Maine also has one of the highest rates of disability in the nation (according to a 2013 press release by the Maine Health Access Foundation). To tackle those issues, and to help people live independently, the Maine Health Access Foundation began awarding “Thriving in Place” grants in 2013. As much as $320,000 worth of the “Thriving in Place” grants will be used by eight organizations to help people stay happy and healthy at home, rather than having to be placed in a hospital or other kind of health institution (according to the same press release).
