Our monthly meetings from September through June feature speakers who share valuable information about human resource topics in areas such as motivation, performance management, human resource strategy, compensation, career management, and legal issues such as FLSA, FMLA, sexual harassment, discrimination and other workplace issues. The various subjects presented for discussion help our members deal effectively with the issues they face in maximizing the contributions made by employees in their respective organizations. Our spring legal update seminar provides vital information about State and Federal compliance issues that impact the human resource function. Both members and non-members are invited to attend.
Understanding the Complexities of Medicare
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE AND TIME:
Thursday, September 23, 2021

We all know someone who is an older adult, a person with a disability or a caregiver. This program will provide information about the services and supports administered by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs. There is no charge for these services and are available state-wide. These services discussed provide information on where to go to understand the complexities of Medicare, save money on prescription drugs and also help caregivers and family members with decisions around the best path to take for their loved ones.
Kathy Devine is the Program Manager and Outreach Coordinator for the Prescription Advantage Program. Kathy has been with the Executive Office of Elder Affairs for 15 years and has also works on programs that support employment for older adults and Alzheimer initiatives.
