We help seniors resolve legal & long-term care problems

SMP staff and Volunteers

Join Ohio SMP as a Volunteer/Peer Educator

At the heart of Ohio SMP are volunteers/peer educators who educate groups of older Americans about illegitimate Medicare practices by presenting information to groups or by distributing literature at senior/health fairs.

See how fun it is by watching this video!   Even while we are all staying at home to #FlattenTheCurve, our peer educators are sharing information with people they know from their own churches, retired professional organizations, social groups and others.  Ohio SMP has had a long-term collaboration with OSHIIP (Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program). We also have strong ties to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office so that both organizations can work to strengthen each other’s efforts to reduce the number of scams aimed at seniors.

As a peer educator, you will not only build your knowledge of the basics of Medicare and learn about health care fraud, you will also be equipped to inform others of how to recognize and avoid fraud and scams.  If you can’t volunteer right now, take a look at other ways you can support Pro Seniors.  #GivingTuesdayNow

Any Ohioan interested in volunteering as a peer educator may contact Jane Winkler at jwinkler@proseniors.org or 513-345-4160 / 1-800-488-6070, extension 523, or complete the following form:

“All too often I read about exploitation of the elderly in the news.  Makes me angry.  And volunteering for SMP (and OSHIIP) is just my way of helping.”
