United Seniors rally to include program on prescription drugs

The 24th annual United Seniors of Maryland legislative rally will be held Jan. 24 in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium on the campus of St. John's College in Annapolis.

The theme will be "Prescription for Health: What's the Best Medicine?" Topics will include prescription drug coverage, long-term care and community-based services fostering independent living.

About 350 people attended the rally last year, when weather complications hampered the turnout. If Anne Arundel County schools are closed because of inclement weather Jan. 24, this year's rally will be held Jan. 25.

Registration is $10 and includes a continental breakfast and box lunch. The breakfast will be available starting at 8:15 a.m., and the program will start at 9:15 a.m. Lunch will be at 11:10 a.m. Participants will then split into groups by geographic area for caucuses with legislators.

Parking will be available at Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for $4, with shuttle service provided to and from the auditorium.

County senior centers are also arranging group transportation on a reservation basis.
