Tim Size

Tim Size has been the executive director of the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative in Sauk City since helping to found it in 1979. The cooperative is owned and operated by forty rural hospitals with a vision that “Rural Wisconsin communities will be the healthiest in America.”

“I was glad to be asked to serve on the CARE Steering Committee for three reasons: (1) as an early baby boomer, I am seeing more and more the challenge for the SoN to focus on an aging population, (2) as a long-time advocate for the needs of nurses serving in rural communities, I feel this is a good opportunity to promote their visibility within the school, and (3) I deeply believe in the Wisconsin Idea that ‘the boundaries of the campus are the boundaries of the state,’ and while the UW is a world-class university, we need to remember that rural Wisconsin is part of that world.”
