TAVARES — The Lake County Elder Affairs Coordinating Council is hosting a Medicare Part D educational forum on Thursday, Jan. 12, at Lake Receptions, located at 4425 Highway 19A, Mount Dora. The forum is from 1 to 4 p.m.
At the free forum, experts from the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Social Security Administration and SHINE, a volunteer group that advises elders on insurance issues, will share details about the benefits of the new program.
