Barrow's office hosts Medicare workshop

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - Senior citizens can have a tough time understanding the contact changes to Medicare, but Congressman John Barrow's office offered a helping hand on Monday in Statesboro.

"I'm relatively new to the web and her proficiency was so much greater and it is a great advantage," said Carroll Thomas from Faulkville.

A mobile computer lab from Fort Valley State University provided the computer access.

Congressman Jack Kingston will also be offering a Part D workshop next Tuesday, December 7 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Armstrong Center at Apache Avenue and Abercorn Street. Seniors are encouraged tp being their prescription information with them to help with the registration.
