The program will be moderated by Joy Potthoff, Ed.D., retired interior design educator and co-chair of the League of Women Voters BG Committee on Senior Concerns. Potthoff will also serve as the chief presenter. The final two sessions will be April 21 and 28.

Assisting Potthoff will be Paula Davis, director of the BGSU Optimal Aging Institute. All three programs will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Wood County District Public Library, 251 N. Main St.
