2020-21 Sanford Center for Aging Transportation Coord.
 
 
 
Nevada is one of the fastest aging states in the United States and the "Enhancing Well-Being and Health Outcomes Among Older Adults" VISTA project aims to build capacity for programs and services that support older adults. The Sanford Center for Aging, based out of the University of Nevada, Reno's School of Medicine is the sponsor for the project and is working with five community sub-sites to foster collaboration and expand the scope of supports and services aimed at enhancing quality of life for our aging community. The Volunteer Mobility Program is part of the Sanford Center for Aging's community outreach portfolio and is dedicated to connecting community volunteers with adults aged 60 and older that can no longer drive. Volunteer drivers bring older adults to opportunities for socialization, health and wellness programs and appointments, educational opportunities, and the grocery store.
