Iowa Congressman David Young announced the location and dates for his Second Annual Iowa Senior Wellness and Security Expos to take place during the month of July in Waukee, Creston and Council Bluffs. The Expos connect Iowa seniors, their families and caretakers with a variety of services and resources available to them. The Expos feature a one-stop-shop with representatives from dozens of local, regional, state and federal organizations and agencies dedicated to serving seniors.
“I have organized these Iowa Senior Wellness and Security Expos with one sole purpose - to help ensure Iowa seniors and their loved ones have access to the important information and resources they need,” noted Congressman Young.
In addition to the representatives from agencies and organizations, attendees will also have access to programs and resources at each of the Expos, including:
- Free health screenings from health care professionals
- Free and safe disposal of unwanted or expired prescription drugs by pharmaceutical professionals
- Caseworkers with federal, state and local agencies and organizations to answer questions and help seniors and their loved ones cut through government agency and program red tape
- Presentations by professionals on how seniors can protect themselves and their savings from ever-growing identity and financial threats from scammers and frauds
- Presentations on steps seniors can take to ensure continued independent living in their homes and communities.
These events are free and open Iowa seniors and the public:
