Karyn Rizzo, Author of Aging in America: Navigating our Healthcare System, says the goal of the event is to empower seniors by educating them about what scams are out there and what tools and resources are available to them.
Largo Police Senior Services Officer Joel Quattlebaum will also be discussing the current scams that are targeting vulnerable older adults and the Pinellas County Consumer Protection department will be on sight to address potential fraud as well as the protections available. A “Panel Extraordinaire” discussion will outline best practices for aging proud and in charge.
This year's program will also feature special guest speaker and author Bobby Lewis to discuss how to find joy behind the headlines.
