The more people know about Medicare-related options, the better choices they’ll make for their healthcare. This will be an uplifting and free educational experience presented by AARP® Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, insured by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company (UnitedHealthcare).

This national initiative delivers important information about Medicare that will be shared with African American baby boomers and their families to help them make informed decisions about their health care coverage options.

To engage the community in this inspirational celebration, the events will feature presentations from 82-year-old record-breaking bodybuilder Ernestine Shepherd, who will share her personal experiences and insights on embracing aging with health and vitality. Local leaders Rev. Oscar D. Epps of Community Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor Marcus D. King of Disciple Central Community Church, will share a word on inspirational guidance. Rita Tolbert from UnitedHealthcare, will walk attendees through basic Medicare concepts, including different parts of the program, eligibility requirements, and enrollment windows. She will be available to answer any questions attendees may have.
