Your are Invited for Lunch
A new AARP survey of North Carolina’s African Americans age 50 or older reflects an older population with bright dreams of traveling and spending time on leisure pursuits in retirement, but concerns over staying healthy, receiving Social Security when they need it, and having enough health insurance coverage cast a shadow over those dreams. Only around one quarter of fewer of those surveyed feel they have the resources they need to address a wide range of concerns.
In addition to AARP’s statewide survey of African Americans, our North Carolina Director of Multicultural Outreach, Debra Tyler-Horton, has met with over 200 African Americans 50+ in Wake County alone to ask, “when you tell the story about your community what are you most proud of?” “What has been your contribution?” When dreaming the future, there are many services and programs available to us as we age, “what is missing for you in your community?”
You are cordially invited to join AARP for lunch to learn more about the survey results and how AARP can help. You will have an opportunity to talk with experts in the field of AARP’s Advocacy, Caregiving, Education, Consumer Fraud Education, Create the Good, Drivers Safety Program, Grandparent Information, Tax Aide and our Multicultural Outreach Initiative. You may also want to take this opportunity to sign-up as an AARP Volunteer! Take this time to do something good for yourself!
