To celebrate and recognize the tremendous work being done in the fields of aging and disability across the State of Iowa, the Iowa Department on Aging will be hosting several educational events in 2017 collectively known as the Dialogue on Aging Series. These programs are open to the public but are specifically designed for aging and disability professionals, caregivers and advocates. Each will focus on a particular topic and showcase the many ways talented individuals and passionate organizations in communities across Iowa are working to improve the quality of life and care for older adults and adults with disabilities.
