Amy Boulware And Peter Harrison Speak At Elder Scholars March 14

Monday, February 27, 2017

Amy Boulware and Peter Harrison will be the speakers at the Elder Scholars meeting on Tuesday, March 14, from 1-2:30 p.m. at UTC's University Center - Signal Mountain Room.

They will speak on "You Can't Make This Up", why estate planning isn't just for the rich and famous.  They will be discussing common mistakes in estate and elder law planning and why it is crucial to understand the reality of elder care issues.  

Ms. Boulware has 22 years of experience serving elders and their families. She is a Tennessee Licensed Advance Practice Social Worker and is the chair of both the Southern Adventist University’s Social Work Advisory Board and the Atlanta Shepherd Center Family and Consumer Advisory Board.  Ms. Boulware, in her spare time, is the co-author of the Senior Survival Guide: An Information System Made Simple as well as the author of a monthly social work. 

Mr. Harrison brings together elder law and special needs practices. Well-versed in the estate, gift, and generation-skipping tax codes, Mr. Harrison works to protect his clients' assets. He combines documents like a last will and power of attorney with adaptable tools such as revocable trusts to accomplish client goals. In addition, his knowledge of supplemental needs trusts, pooled trusts and public benefits like SSI, SSDI and Medicaid helps clients navigate the often confusing path to necessary care.

Membership in Elder Scholars is free to everyone over 55. Parking is free at UTC in Lot 7 at the corner of Douglas and East 5th Street or in the Fifth Street parking garage (high rise parking). When parking in either of these locations, place a copy of an Elder Scholars announcement in the window of your car.  Several meet at noon in the University Center for lunch together.  They will be in the corner over by the windows, near the door facing Vine Street.
