UnitedHealthcare will host its A Better You health and wellness education program in Greer to help African Americans ages 60 and above and other Medicare beneficiaries learn more about Medicare and their health care coverage options.

A Better You encourages people to plan for healthy living.

The event – brought to you by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company and The United Methodist Church – will bring attendees together for a Medicare workshop to promote health literacy and holistic health. Attendees will learn about the basics of Medicare – including the different parts of the program, eligibility requirements, and enrollment windows – to help them make informed health care coverage decisions.

The A Better You experience will also feature tips from renowned speakers to motivate and engage attendees with helpful information to plan for continued healthy living.
For the first time, Reverend Telley Lynnette Gadson joins A Better You to share her lifelong battle with obesity and her weight loss journey and encourage African Americans approaching retirement to be good stewards of their physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Attendees will also hear from UnitedHealthcare’s Rita Tolbert, who will facilitate the Medicare education portion of the events. Rita Tolbert has more than 25 years of experience in the health and life insurance industry. She works passionately to help African Americans who are Medicare eligible gain a clearer understanding of Medicare and take control of their health care through education.
