The Baltimore City Health Department’s Office of Aging & CARE Services, presents a 13-month workshop series entitled Waxter Wisdom.
Waxter Wisdom is a free workshop series geared toward the older adult population, the disabled and our professionals. The free, full-day, workshop series will take place every month at the Waxter Senior Center.
Waxter Wisdom gives you the opportunity to be your own advocate. By learning the most up-to-date information regarding medical & financial matters, you are able to make informed decisions regarding your life. Professionals and consumers of Baltimore City are encouraged to attend.
