The purpose of the group is to share information between the members and with the community about the resources that are available for the elderly or for those caring for aging loved ones.

 

The members of Central Iowa Senior Educational Network are frequent speakers on their topics of expertise. We will work with your group to develop a focused presentation that addresses your needs. Typical presentations include three to four topics combined to create a theme.
