The AARP Arizona Community Educators Program (CEP) is launching a renewed effort to reach people in the Tucson area through free informational presentations on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and fraud.
Trained volunteers with Arizona’s CEP, coordinated through the AARP Arizona Tucson Information Center are available to present to groups and organizations as well as at libraries and community centers upon request.
“There are many people in Tucson who do not have a clear understanding of the workings of the Affordable Care Act,” said David Parra, AARP Arizona Associate State Director. “CEP is designed to bring an understanding of the health care law to people at the community level with the help of our trained volunteers.”
In addition to offering free educational presentations on the Affordable Care Act, AARP volunteers are available to present on AARP’s recently launched Fraud Watch Network.
“We have added fraud to our free CEP presentation series as part of our work with the AARP Fraud Watch Network,” added Parra. “It’s important that people learn how to protect themselves from falling victim to various types of fraud and scams.”
The AARP national Fraud Watch Network offers free resources and information at www.aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork. For those that sign up with the Network, they receive local alerts about fraud activities in their area.
