“Connect, create, contribute” is the theme for this year’s Older Americans Month. The Administration for Community Living encourages older Americans to connect with friends, family and local services, create through activities that promote learning, health and personal enrichment and contribute time, talent and live experience to benefit others.
The link below will lead you to a page that shows the Aging in America website, including information about their annual conference...it was held last month but there are some links to some of the presentations given at the conference.
Remember, communities that embrace older Americans are stronger! And remember Pam our Health & Wellness specialist is taking new patients at Skin Iowa!

But what about how to prevent eye injuries when we are at work and play? Also the tip about needing to rest our eyes for 20 seconds every 20 minutes we are on the computer or phone is an excellent reminder!
