Poweshiek County has been chosen by an international group as one of four areas to participate in a project to develop a community health model. Dr. Gaylord Nordine of the Human Assets Institute says current health care services aren’t broad enough in scope. Chicago, Munich, German and Bolzano, Italy are also participating in the project. Nordine says the model is builton five pillars: protection, preservation, enhancement, repair and restoration. Nordine says this model goes beyond the hospitals and doctorsin the county. Once it is completed he says it will have world wide implications. The Human Assets Institute is giving the county leaders50-thousand dollars to help develope the model.
