Sugar Hill offers Medicare education seminars

SUGAR HILL -- The city of Sugar Hill will host a series of free educational seminars geared toward helping residents understand the ins and outs of Medicare.

The sessions -- which will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 17 and again on Jan. 24 at the Sugar Hill Community Center -- are aimed at members of the community approaching age 65 or retirement who may find themselves in need of Medicare. Dubbed "Medicare 101," the seminars will "provide vital information and materials about the Medicare options available so (participants) can make educated decisions regarding their health care needs."

Classes will include a 30-minute presentation, as well as question and answer sessions. They will begin at 7 p.m. each night.

The Sugar Hill Community Center is located at 1166 Church St.
