Living LiFE Learning Longer


Iron County Senior University - classes, workshops and academics for adults

Opportunities for life long learning is an important characteristic to creating aging friendly communities. Life long learning and social connectedness are also essential to staying healthy and active as we age.

FE UNIVERSITY is a program started by the Iron County Aging Friendly Communities Coalition for older adults who desire to keep their minds active, and to stay connected to the community.  We hope to grow this program into  a "college" for seniors with many classes and opportunities for learning.

Our first class of FE UNIVERSITY will kick off this JULY -AUGUST.

Take part in this unique opportunity and the first ever university for senior citizens.


Summer 2014 Courses:

Narrative and Knowledge                                            Course#101

Instructor: Ingrid Nordstrom

Location: Mercer Public Library

Date and Time: July 21-Aug 13 (4 weeks)

Monday and Wednesday, 9:00am - 11:00am

In Taking Care: Thoughts on Storytelling and Belief, William Kittredge writes, "We live in stories. What we are is stories. We do things because of what is called character, and our character is formed by the stories we learn to live in. Late in the night we listen to our own breathing in the dark, and rework our stories, and we do it again the next morning, and all day long, before the looking glass of ourselves, reinventing our purposes." We discover ourselves through storytelling, and when we write our stories, we are able to share the defining moments of our lives, and what we have learned from them, with a larger audience.

In this class we will explore - through our reading and writing - the personal essay, considering the balance between truth and subjectivity, how to turn personal stories into compelling reading, and how to convey emotion through writing. We will read a range of published essays and look closely at how writers use language to make meaning and then try out some of those strategies in our own writing. Participants will work together to write and revise two short pieces and one essay that they will share with the class.

Changes for Local Health Departments

The Wisconsin Immunization Program was not granted an extension by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on the implementation of the 317 vaccine policy change that prevents the use of federally funded vaccine to immunize individuals whose insurance covers the cost of vaccine. Beginning October 1, 2012, individuals whose insurance covers immunizations will not be able to be immunized with state supplied vaccine (i.e., federally purchased 317 vaccine), even if the insurance includes a high deductible or co-pay, or the plan's deductible has not been met,  at local health departments.

Making sure that children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things that can be done to ensure children's long-term health-as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in the community. Immunization is the best way to protect children from 16 potentially harmful, sometimes deadly, diseases. Children in Wisconsin are required to be vaccinated against diseases like measles and whooping cough before they can enter school.

We encourage parents to make sure that their children are up-to-date on their immunizations and to bring them in now if they need vaccines. Parents can check the immunization status of their child by contacting the Iron County Health Department, your health care provider, or look up your child's immunization record in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry at

Parents should be aware that beginning October 1, 2012, children whose insurance covers immunizations will not be able to receive vaccines at the Iron County Health Department. They will need to visit their primary health care provider for their immunizations and we encourage parents to plan ahead to ensure their children are fully vaccinated during this back-to-school time. If you are unable to secure an appointment with your health care provider, you may still bring them in to your local health department before October 1, 2012 to receive needed immunizations.

Uninsured children and those eligible (Badger Care) for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program can continue to receive their immunizations at their local health department or from a private health care provider.

If parents have questions regarding this change, please call the Iron County Health Department at 715-561-2191.
