50+ Summer Seminars - How to Make the Right Choice


Sign Posts., Digital ID 1136373, New York Public LibraryChoices...

I would choose to have only 70 degree days throughout the summer, and a light breeze wafting through the air, plus a New York City to live in just as it is—but with affordable rents in midtown. Wouldn’t you? Unfortunately, these aren't choices I can make. But there is a world of choices that we can make to make our lives better, and to make an informed choice we should hear from the experts first.

Those over 50, or perhaps helping an older friend or family member with care and/or information, may want to come to one of the Consumer Choices Summer Seminars being held in public libraries in Manhattan and Staten Island over the next few weeks. Several experts will be speaking about topics including:

You will also hear from a speaker from the NYC Department for the Aging about some New York City programs for people with limited income. And a representative from the State Consumer Protection Board will inform us about scams—computer, phone, and mail—and how you can choose not to become a victim of predators, as well as what steps to take if you are victimized.

There will be adaptive F.M. listening devices, including loops, available at these seminars, and all locations are accessible to people using wheelchairs.

Come—so you can make the best choices!
