When it comes to creating positive change, volunteers are well-positioned to partner with AARP North Dakota staff to build on the steady progress we’ve made. One of our priorities is supporting members who are interested in working on issues important to those 50-plus, such as caregiving, prescription drug coverage, and fraud protection at the state level. In addition to our ongoing work at the federal level (Social Security, Medicare, and prescription drug prices), we are also looking at what work we can do at the local level to make your community a better place for you and all.
