Mercy in Des Moines Hosts Radical Freedom of Age Seminar


Mercy Medical Center, Des Moines, Iowa, sponsored a Radical Freedom of Age Seminar that provided a light-hearted opportunity to learn, share and network to more than 130 people of faith who use their talents and knowledge to promote a meaningful life as they grow older. A grant from Catholic Health Initiatives helped offset conference expenses, including registration fees for 30 participants from central city churches and those with physical limitations. Attendees enjoyed listening to a keynote speaker and choosing from 11 mini-classes on subjects such as brain wellness, repair of religious statues and line dancing.
