Volunteers are the backbone of the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) and the Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP). Older adult volunteers with both of these Medicare programs benefit from the social engagement opportunities that volunteering provides. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to new challenges as well as new opportunities for SHIP and SMP volunteers.

Join engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults, the SHIP National Technical Assistance Center, the SMP National Resource Center, and a local SHIP/SMP director and volunteer for a webinar to learn how SHIPs and SMPs have adapted in response to COVID-19 to ensure older adults can continue to volunteer and engage with both programs remotely.
