Hello all! My name is Mariah Broehm. I recently started with HeartCorps as a service member. I am ecstatic to be working with HeartCorps, through the UW-Extension FoodWIse, as well as with the wide range of communities we serve. For next 11 months, I’ll be serving the communities within Manitowoc, Kewaunee, and Door Counties throughout my time with HeartCorps.
HeartCorps is working with the American Heart Association to drive health equity in rural America. Our intention is to help meet public health needs of local communities by providing needed support in local public health settings and advancing more equitable health outcomes for communities that are currently or historically underserved.
I am whole-heartedly thrilled to be serving the community I grew up in and its surrounding areas. My goal is not only to improve my health, but to also help improve the overall health of the communities I will serve. I am very appreciative of this opportunity and overjoyed to be a part of achieving health equity in Northeast Wisconsin.
