The www.3in4needmore.com bus with Dr. Marion and her crew pulled up in front of the Oak Branch Public Library this afternoon. The vehicle, a very large and impressive sight that you can’t miss, averages 5-6 mpg, weighs 25,000 pounds, and is a converted 1967 Greyhound bus. It is decorated with sponsor logos all over.
The bus is home base for Dr. Marion and her crew. They are on a 12 week, cross-country trip to promote the www.3in4needmore campaign. They stop, meet the public, and do press interviews to inform the public about the need for responsible long-term care planning all along their journey.
One reason for the bus’s visit to Houston was to kick off a very exciting pilot program between www.3in4needmore.com, the TX Long-Term Care Partnership (TX LTCP), and the TX Department of Health and Human Services (TX HHS).
The www.3in4needmore.com campaign mission is to educate the public about the need for responsible long-term care planning. These goals are shared by the TX LTCP Partnership and TX HHS. What a great partnership!
Four special pilot seminars have been scheduled for July 20-21, 2012, in Houston. Similar seminars have been planned in other major TX cities. www.3in4needmore.com members like myself, who have been carefully vetted and trained, will teach the seminars on behalf of the TX LTCP and TX HHS.
Long-term care insurance specialists like myself are qualified, available, and highly capable of teaching why responsible long-term care planning is urgently and vitally important. No selling, pressure or bias takes place during these educational seminars.
I am (obviously) very honored and proud to have been chosen to participate in this important project.
We are hoping this special www.3in4needmore.com, TX LTCP, TX HHS collaboration will go so well that it will be replicated over and over, not only in Texas, but in other states.
Dr. Marion taught today’s seminar. Three seminars will take place tomorrow. I will teach two of them, and my colleague, Kevin Cain, will teach the third. All seminars will take place at the Oak Branch Public Library, 1439 West 43rd Street, Houston, TX 77018. You may register to attend at http://www.3in4needmore.com/texas-ltc-seminars/
