Take action for healthy aging with Midlife & Beyond

Mid Life and Beyond

Every generation puts its own spin on the aging process, and people today are approaching their 50s, 60s, 70s and older years differently from their parents. Mid Life & Beyond: The Whole Picture, from ISU Extension and Outreach, is helping Iowans take a closer look at how they want to age.

Communities are taking action on a variety of issues such as transportation needs, affordable housing, recreational and fitness activities, and entertainment opportunities. Currently about a third of Iowa’s 99 counties are participating in Mid Life & Beyond, examining how their communities can improve and change to meet their needs.
