Medicare Rights Center’s Annual Awards Dinner
The 2013 Medicare Rights Center’s Annual Awards Dinner was a success, says Joe Baker, President. With the generous supporters at the event, the organization will now be able to advance their mission of working to ensure access to affordable health care for older adults and people with disabilities through their programs in counseling and advocacy, education and public policy initiatives. The group promises to broaden their outreach in states across the country with programs including Seniors Out Speaking—which now reaches more than 60,000 individuals.
The group honored Elizabeth J. Fowler, Vice President, Global Health Policy at Johnson & Johnson; Janella T. Hinds, Vice President, United Federation of Teachers and Secretary-Treasurer, NYS AFL-CIO, Central Labor Council; and Dr. Steven M. Safyer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Montefiore Medical Center, for their visionary leadership in improving health care quality and increasing access to care for all Americans.
The group looks forward to sharing their initiatives, news and achievements as they develop throughout the year. #
