Other topics help Iowans assess environmental factors to age in place, identify financial exploitation and fraud, and raise awareness about planning for future care and end-of-life decisions,” Cathy Drost, human sciences specialist, said.

An upcoming series will be offered from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. Mondays, July 1 through July 15 at The Gathering Place. The topics include: Power Up with Protein, Brain Health and Thriving in Place.
