You are invited to join me and a panel of experts at the 2020 Senior Symposium on February 20th! 

This event is free and open to all seniors and their families in the 4th Congressional District. There are many resources available for seniors, but navigating the systems can be difficult. I welcome you to attend and ask questions if you or a loved one has questions about health and retirement benefits, identity theft and other threats, or veterans issues. Constituents are encouraged to pre-register for the event here. Pre-registration is not required for attendance, but it will speed up the check-in process on the morning of the event.
