Share Article

NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, has expanded its educational efforts by offering an array of free special-topic webinars.

For the past year, NeedyMeds has been offering bi-monthly webinars that go over the resources available on the NeedyMeds website. Participants learn how to navigate http://www.needymeds.org. The primary goal is to review various sections of the website and teach participants how to get the most out of it.

In addition to the bi-monthly webinars, NeedyMeds now offers presentations on an array of topics relevant to health care professionals, advocates and patients. Presenters are specialists in their fields and sessions are interactive, with a question and answer period at the conclusion of each session. Patient advocates can also visit the Advocates page for other helpful educational and informative resources.

Webinar topics in the month of May include a review of Mental Health resources for free or low cost medication and counseling, and a session on whether clinics may benefit from using software in their efforts to help uninsured clients apply to financial assistance programs.

In June, NeedyMeds will host a webinar about Social Security Disability Programs and Compassionate Allowances and a presentation in Spanish reviewing the resources on the NeedyMeds website.

Visit the NeedyMeds Webinar page for information about the NeedyMeds webinars and to register for free. Make sure to check often, as new webinars are added frequently.
