Heart of New Ulm Has a New Website 

With The Heart of New Ulm's (HONU's) research phase ending in 2018, HONU is now owned by the entire New Ulm community! This means that YOU and everyone in our community is The Heart of New Ulm. It also means a few changes on where to find and contact us!

New website:
Our new website is www.heartofnewulm.com.

Thanks to the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce for hosting the HONU pages!


New main contact 
and phone number:
In 2019, Jen Maurer will serve as the main program contact for HONU. Jen can be reached at:


Cindy Winters will also continue to be involved with the project, but on a more limited basis as she also continues her work with The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation helping other communities learn from the HONU model.

Leadership and Action Teams:
The project is being led by a 12-person HONU Leadership Team that has representatives from many community groups and organizations, along with 11 Action Teams comprised of your friends and neighbors -- all working to improve health through many different avenues. By engaging people across our community, HONU helps facilitate and support partnerships that are best positioned to do the important work of sustaining a healthy New Ulm.
