Health Decisions Tour coming to a town near you

Andy Farmer 2013

The AARP Listens to Michigan Tour will hit the road again this month and will make stops in Lansing, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Detroit, Marquette, Kalamazoo and Jackson.

The focus of the tour will be “Health Decisions.” Topics to be explored include navigating health reform, Medicare, long-term care and caregiving issues and solutions.

“We will stress the key information and advocacy resources available for many of these issues for those planning their health decisions and those already dealing with health decisions problems,” said Andrew Farmer, AARP Michigan Associate State Director for Health and Supportive Services.

AARP Michigan will invite local organizations to the tour stops to lend further assistance during a question-and-answer session.

A light meal will be provided, free of charge.
