Free Seminars Offered to Georgia Seniors with Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses

/PRNewswire/ -- A series of free seminars designed to help Georgia Medicare beneficiaries with chronic illness maintain a healthy lifestyle and learn about Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans designed for their unique needs will be offered during March at various locations throughout the state.

Care Improvement Plus, the state's largest Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan for beneficiaries with diabetes and other chronic conditions, is hosting the sessions, which will include tips on proper nutrition and fitness, a free farmers market, and information on its 2009 plan offerings.

"Medicare beneficiaries in Georgia experience higher rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart failure, which can lead to serious complications if not properly managed," says Lisa Nelson, national director of community outreach for Care Improvement Plus. "Our goal is not only to educate beneficiaries on our plan benefits and services, but to present them with a sense of the unique support and education that our special needs plan seeks to provide."
