Way to go Garland Senior Fair!

August 8, 2012

Extend Health exhibited at the Garland Senior Fair in Texas this past Sat, Aug 4. There was a great turnout of over 350 people from the community and surrounding areas including seniors, their families, community leaders and service providers like us, who care about seniors and senior issues.

State Representative Angie Chen Button thanked Dwight and Ivory in person for exhibiting at the fair, fulfilling an invitation that she extended to Bryce Williams, Towers Watson Managing Director of Extend Health, at the ribbon-cutting of the first Extend Health service center in Richardson this past May.

Richardson Mayor Bob Townsend encouraged everyone to make good use of the resources available. And many other community leaders, including City of Rowlett Senior Advisory Board members Pamela Bell and Wayne Baxter, met with attendees and the community groups and companies exhibiting.

Dwight Turner and Ivory Rooks, both senior benefit advisors for Extend Health, who have years of experience helping seniors choose the best Medicare plans for them, served as Extend Health ambassadors. They answered people’s questions about Medicare and shared resources with them, explaining the role Extend Health can play in helping to connect people with the best coverage for their needs.

According to Dwight, “We put the care into shopping for Medicare!“

Ivory added, “It was great to be able to connect in person with people and extend a helping hand.”

Extend Health contributed a Texas-themed gift basket, which was raffled off to a lucky winner. The day was welcome chance to connect in person with many in a community that is very important to Extend Health.

We recently announced that Extend Health is bringing over 500 jobs to the community with the opening of its second service center in the Richardson Telecom Corridor.

  1. Our elderly are the ones who usually get sick and requires frequent medical attention. I think this event is great and had helped seniors a lot in terms of their medical needs through the medicare they got. I hope that there will be more helpful; events like this all throughout our country.
