WHAT'S NEW with the Symposium?

If you are a member of the senior community in the Pocatello area or the Treasure Valley area, we know you will love the changes we've made for this year's symposium!

This year ISU is bringing the symposium to you! There will be interactive presentations on topics of interest for seniors in areas such as medications, oral health, fall prevention, good nutrition and more. There will be games, demonstrations, and prize giveaways as well. The symposium will also showcase the Health Sciences programs at Idaho State University.
