AOA Launches National Public Awareness Campaign

The Department of Health & Human Services, through AoA, launches a national public awareness campaign about Senior Medicare Patrol with fraud prevention public service announcements (PSAs), fact sheets, and other information resources. AoA provides media toolkits, training, and support to the SMPs to ensure effective placement and response to the PSAs. Also, SMPs receive special capacity-building grants, enabling many to hire coordinators of volunteers.
