For the past 11 years, in collaboration with community partners in Waukesha County and southeastern Wisconsin, Carroll University’s health sciences students and faculty have provided wellness activities across the lifespan for individuals experiencing chronic disease and disability. Bryon Riesch, as well as many other individuals, have directly benefited from this service.
