Becoming an Ohio SMP Volunteer/Peer Educator

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

See how fun it is by watching this video!

Peer educators often share information at their own churches, retired professional organizations, social groups and other locations where seniors gather. 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 be informed about the basics of Medicare and learn about health care fraud. Read a letter about how rewarding it is to be a volunteer/peer educator.

Any Ohioan interested in volunteering as a peer educator may contact Jane Winkler by email or at 1-800-488-6070, extension 223, 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.”
