AARP South Dakota will be in the national spotlight as State Director Sarah Jennings joins fellow AARP staff members and a volunteer on AARP “Live,” to be broadcast on RFD-TV. RFD-TV is distributed into over 40 million homes nationwide, including DIRECTV and DISH Network. Representatives from AARP will discuss various topics that pertain to 50+ America, with host Mark Oppold, and will take questions from RFD-TV’s national television audience via phone.
During the hour-long program Feb. 24 at 9 pm CT, Jennings will join the AARP panel to discuss key aspects of the new health care law and the issue of jobs and employment issues for the 50+ population.
“During our first show in November 2010, many of the callers had questions about the new health care law and what it means for them and their families,” said Jennings. “Several key provisions of the new law are being implemented right now. It is important for viewers to understand the new benefits, and use that information to make the best health care decisions for themselves and their loved ones.”
Jennings will also be part of the AARP panel during the show set to air March 24 at 9 pm CT Topics for the March 24 show include the “Drive to End Hunger” AARP’s effort to address hunger among America’s seniors.
“We know 6 million older Americans struggle with hunger,” Jennings said. “But each one of us – through some simple, small actions, can make a big difference in making sure no one goes without the food they need. The March 24 program of AARP Live on RFD-TV will showcase a variety of opportunities to get involved and make a difference.”
RFD-TV will broadcast one “AARP Live” show each month throughout 2011. Jennings will participate in a number of programs throughout the year.
