"I want to tell you how important Vance has been to all of us here at Vanderbilt. We are receiving really good information from her daily, she has arranged all sorts of things for us, I could go on and on, but the fact is, I don't know what we would do without her."

"I appreciate the help of one your volunteers who assisted me with my Medicare journey of obtaining prescription part D and supplemental insurance. Pam spent nearly 2 hours on the telephone with me and was very friendly, patient and helpful! I am thankful to have her and the Council on Aging as a resource in this community!"
