Hundreds of Los Angeles seniors came together last week to enjoy live gospel entertainment and learn more about their health care and the Pfizer for Living Share Card Program, a program that helps low-income seniors get affordable access to prescription medications.

“We chose to present these events to seniors because they are a group that historically has the most difficulty affording basic medical care. We believe this program provides a meaningful benefit to those seniors who need it,” said Andrea Bevacqua, director of the Pfizer for Living Share Card Program.

The event was part of Sharing Time with Seniors, a national program co-sponsored by the nonprofit COSHAR Foundation, Radio One and Pfizer Inc. In addition to the health information, seniors enjoyed a free brunch, gift bags, and live performances by internationally acclaimed gospel vocalist Jeff Majors, local musician and pastor Rev. Jonathan Maxey, and gospel comedian Rod of God.
