Enjoy a day of fun and learning at the annual Living Well Conference provided by the Health & Human Science Educators with Purdue Extension in Area 7. This special day is open to the public and will be on Thursday, Oct. 17, at Millcreek Civic Center in Chesterfield, Indiana (Madison County).

Starting with registration at 8:45 a.m., the Keynote Speakers will be from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with the Indiana State Police. They will address Digital Safety & Responsibility. If the children that you know learn technology faster than you can keep up, you need to hear this information. While they learn quickly, they still need our protection against the many dangers lurking online.

Each participant may choose three sessions from the topics being provided by the HHS educators representing the following east-central Indiana counties: Blackford, Jay, Henry, Delaware, Rush, Madison, Wayne, Randolph, Franklin, Union and Fayette. Topics include:

• Finances and Aging Parents

• Defining Diabetes

• Happiness Advantage: The Key to Unlocking Your Happiness

• Lean on Me (responding to depression)

• Meal Planning & Prepping

• Simply Mindful

• The Power of Music for Health
