AARP Idaho state director Lupe Wissel issued the following statement after the Senate Finance Committee’s 19-9 bipartisan vote in favor of the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act of 2019:
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger Idaho We hope you’ll join us!
Every single day, AARP Idaho volunteers fuel our work in communities across the Gem State. Without the hundreds who donate their time, skills and passion, we wouldn’t have enough capacity to help older Idahoans transform their lives. If you would like to learn more about our volunteer opportunities we encourage you to reach out and discover all of the unique opportunities at AARP Idaho.
You're invited Join us for an important conversation. Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world and many seniors are forced to choose between filling a prescription or putting food on their table. We're hosting a live and interactive statewide telephone town hall to discuss this issue with Leigh Purvis, Director of Health Services Research in AARP’s Public Policy Institute. We will take your questions on the air and talk about common sense solutions to skyrocketing prescription drug prices.
Whether you're seeing it for the first time or watching it again, Catch Me If You Can is a classic. This Oscar-nominated movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, looks at the life of Frank Abagnale, Jr. In his early years Abagnale (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) successfully impersonated a doctor, a lawyer, and a co-pilot for a major airline — all before his 18th birthday. A master of deception, he was also a brilliant forger, whose skill gave him his first real claim to fame. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (played by Tom Hanks) makes it his prime mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead of him. (Rated PG-13 for some sexual content and brief language.)
As part of the fight against fraud and identity theft, AARP Idaho is offering a FREE shredding opportunity on July 13, 2019 at the College of Western Idaho in Nampa. The event takes place from 9am to noon or until the trucks are full. There’s no limit on the number of bags or boxes but shredding services are for personal documents only.
