The Quality Improvement Program for Missouri's Long - Term Care Facilities (QIPMO) is committed to Missouri's Elderly.
The "Aging-in-place" model allows older adults to receive health care in their preferred place of living, eliminating the need for a more restricted living space, such as a nursing home.
TigerPlace is a specially designed elder housing project initiated by the MU Sinclair School of Nursing, working to provide elders a better quality of life.

The moderator findings of her analyses of exercise change interventions have provided dramatic evidence regarding the most effective interventions to increase physical activity. Dr. Conn also conducts primary and meta-analysis research on medication management and medication adherence. She leads an established team of international experts in health behavior change and meta-analysis methods. In addition to her substantive work, Dr. Conn published methodological papers to advance meta-analysis research practice.
