We thank the guests and honorees who attended the Center's 25th Anniversary on April 14th at the Hartford Club in Hartford, Connecticut. We had time to connect with friends and celebrate two-and-a-half decades of advocacy, as well as have some fun with silent and live auctions and a 9 piece band!
We thank everyone who has supported us over the past two-and-a-half decades. And, for those looking forward to the next 25 years, it's never too late to help the Center for Medicare Advocacy build a dynamic future with a donation.
The Center's National Luminaries were Senator Christopher Dodd, Hon. Barbara Kennelly, Marilyn Moon, Tricia Neumann, and Bruce Vladeck. The Center's Connecticut Advocacy Champions were Kate McEvoy, Julie Evans Starr, Molly Gavin and Rep. Peter Villano.
Since 1986, thousands of people have counted on the Center for Medicare Advocacy to obtain access to health care financing, necessary care, and Medicare. We've come a long way from the one-room, one-person office we rented 25 years ago, to our current role as a national voice for older people and people with disabilities.
The Center's staff now includes the most experienced, diverse beneficiary advocates in the country. Headquartered in Connecticut, the Center also has an office in Washington, D.C. that specializes in Medicare and healthcare policy, a Data Unit in Maine, and attorneys in Arizona, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.
We are poised to build a dynamic future with the Center's unique mix of passion, compassion, and legal acumen. Thank you for trusting in us years ago when we were little more than a dream. And for helping us continue providing topnotch advocacy, analysis, and education – all in the interest of real people.
The Center for Medicare Advocacy gratefully acknowledges our 25th Anniversary Platinum Sponsors, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, AARP, and the Medicare Rights Center.
