Healthcare Seminar at CAMP Rehoboth
The CAMP Rehoboth Community Center presents “Healthcare Reform and Medicare: An Educational Discussion for Retirees and Pre-Retirees” on Thursday, October 7, 2010. The workshop, which will begin at 7 p.m., will be held in the Community Center at 37 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach.
Earlier this year President Barack Obama signed the healthcare reform bill into law. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will strengthen the Medicare and Medicaid programs and our healthcare system for years to come. “This law enacts many changes. It’s to your benefit to be in-the-know!” says workshop presenter John Glowacky. Mr. Glowacky is a certified State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselor by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with more than 20 years of healthcare policy experience. John has been following healthcare policy from his days as a consultant for a prestigious DC healthcare policy think tank, Covance, where he worked on shaping healthcare policy for the pharmaceutical industry. John will discuss our healthcare system and the impact of PPACA.
This workshop is the first of a series of sessions offered by CAMP Rehoboth in the Community Center. “Each workshop will address different topics, all of them suggested by people who completed CAMP’s online survey earlier this year,” explains CAMP Rehoboth Programs Committee Chair Glen Pruitt. “We received a number of good suggestions, and we are following up on them.” The sessions are offered free-of-charge, and pre-registration is strongly encouraged. “We want to make sure we have enough room and enough handouts for everyone!” adds Glen.
To register for the workshop, contact the CAMP Rehoboth office at 302-227-5620 by October 5.
Donate a Phone Each One Helps
Donate your old wireless phone—it could save a life. The Donate-A-Phone project is a national wireless phone collection drive designed to provide domestic violence victims with a powerful tool—a wireless phone. A partnership between the Wireless Foundation, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Motorola, the program provides free phones to victims of domestic violence through the CALL to PROTECT program.
CAMP Rehoboth, partnering with Motorola for several years to collect used cell phones, serves as a drop-off location. Bring your phones to CAMP Rehoboth, 37 Baltimore Avenue, and we’ll ship them back to Motorola.
Wanted: A Few Good Women
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is looking for a “few good women” to assist with Women Build 2010. No construction experience is necessary as training will be available on site. Habitat’s “Hand Up, Not a Hand-Out” philosophy has the future homeowner doing “sweat equity,” working alongside volunteers to make the dream of homeownership a reality.
Women Build began in 1991 in North Carolina as a program that seeks to include, encourage, and empower women to join in Habitat’s mission to build simple, decent, and affordable housing. In 2009 Women Build volunteers built a record 252 houses across the United States. Women Build takes women from all walks of life and teaches them basic construction skills, enabling them to not only build houses for Habitat but also to feel more confident and empowered in their own lives.
Interested women can contact Habitat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
