Health Care Scams Discussion: The Manhattan-New Lenox TRIAD for seniors will discuss health care scams at its meeting at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the New Lenox police station community room, 701 W. Haven Ave. The program will be presented by the Illinois Attorney General’s office to make seniors aware of scammers who call, email or send letters and texts to get money and personal and financial information. They know people have questions about the new health insurance marketplace and they take advantage of that to mislead and cheat people. The TRIAD is made up of several agencies and organizations from New Lenox and Will County to implement effective crime prevention and health and safety educational programs for senior citizens. Meetings are free and open to all senior citizens in the area. Information: (815) 485-6431.
