The focus of the conference is to celebrate active and healthy living, as well as empower local residents to be part of the health, financial, and social decision-making systems, services and activities that make up their daily life as Sauk County residents.

Extension Sauk County along with its companion organization, Home and Community Education (HCE), will be hosting the conference at the Baraboo High School in Baraboo, WI. Local community businesses and organizations are invited to present their services to area residents to help promote healthy and active aging within the county.

The conference will also host presenters from the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy, UW Madison Division of Extension, UW Health Rehabilitation Center, The Baraboo Area Senior Center, and an Estate Planning Attorney from LaRowe Gerlach Taggart of Reedsburg.

Morning presenters will be discussing safe medication management, storage, and driving independence as well as thinking about how to use technology to stay connected locally & globally. There will be workshops in the afternoon that cover everything from staying active and healthy, to getting involved locally, to thinking about how to prepare for your financial future.
