They will also be with us at our New York for Seniors Health and Wellness Series, which has become a citywide series that now includes Harlem, Queens, the Bronx and Brooklyn. Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield will also be offering free workshops at our events, educating attendees on how to navigate aspects of the healthcare system. We will announce details of the workshop in the coming weeks. I want to also mention that our events are free for the public to attend.”
