Local senior citizens will learn about topics from health and finances to tourism and romance at the Aging With Attitude regional expo Friday, April 27.
The event, which returns to Iola for the second year, targets senior citizens but others who want to learn more about such issues are welcome, said Gayle Price with Southeast Research and Extension Center.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Johns Parish Center, 315 South St., and includes lunch, refreshments, screenings, vendors and two short physical warm-up activies. Four breakout sessions, each about 45 minutes, allow participants to learn about issues important to them. The sessions include topics such as exploring intimacy later in life, places to visit in southeast Kansas, downsizing ones possessions and sharing memories. The expo also will cover health-related topics like Medicare Part D and veterans benefits, physical activity, how diet affects vision and how to prepare meals for one or two.
