Regular Meeting on August 8th:

Irene O'Brien, LCSW, is with the Wallingford Visiting Nurses Association and was their facilitator for their former hepatitis C group. Mrs. O'Brien will discuss basic available resources for income, medicines, health insurances, etc., as well as how the insurance game works and some common sense suggestions for advocacy.
