The goal of the Senior Series Program is to encourage health and vitality in adults age 60 and older within Franklin County. Ohio State University Extension offers educational information to improve their mental and physical health, encourage an independent lifestyle and provide maximum opportunities to enjoy and contribute to life within their home community.
We offer programs, to support this goal, at a site and time convenient for you.
