Welcome to Medicare Workshop offered

The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem is offering a virtual workshop for individuals turning 65 (as well as those who already have Medicare) to learn about the different insurance options available, including “Original Medicare,” Medicare prescription drug programs, Medicare supplements and Medicare Advantage plans.

The session will be held virtually via Zoom on Monday, May 22, from 3-4:30 p.m. through computer and telephone access.

The session is designed to explain and clarify the Medicare sign-up process and educate attendees on how to make smart choices.  Trained Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counselors will be available  to answer general questions.

The session is provided at no cost. Because space is limited, reservations are required. Contact the Shepherd’s Center at 336-748-0217 or for more information or to reserve a seat.
