Ask The Experts — Big Success!

If you missed our Ask the Experts event on August 3, then, well, you missed our Ask the Experts event! Sessions were PACKED with information from highly knowledgeable experts in the fields of Medicare & Supplemental Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, VA Benefits, and Essential Oils & Wellness Solutions. A quick break for lunch and we were back at it again.

“Wow, what a day. I’m so glad I came! Can we do this again? SOON?!”

Jane Lehto, MRR Medical Reimbursement Resource; Liebe Ostro Miller, Ostrow Financial Group; Ruth-Ann Toups, The Hilbun Law Firm; Kim Tweedel, Advocates for the Independent; and Dorothy Gurka, Young Living presented an informative program that had everyone focused and impressed. A Q&A session followed each segment and was restricted only by time. Pity we had to stay on schedule!
