Feeling Empowered by Getting Covered Pt. 2

March 20, 2024

The featured topic was life insurance — not selling it, but educating people about it.

As a repeat guest for Wellness Wednesdays, SAY Detroit Family Health Clinic’s monthly women’s support group, sales agent Krystal Woods understands better than most the concerns many older adults have about life insurance.

It’s a personal topic, and people buy it for all sorts of reasons, including covering burial and final expenses, leaving an inheritance, or, perhaps, helping to replace lost wages and income.

“For many, it’s peace of mind,’’ Woods said. “It’s protection for your family. No matter what your (financial) situation is, a lot of people don’t want the cost of a burial to be put on your family.’’

More than two dozen women attended Wednesday’s session, which featured a special brunch catered by “Taste Tiff’’s Catering’’ of Detroit.

“The biggest takeaway for me is that GoFundMe is not life insurance,’’ said Alexis Harvey of the SAY Clinic, who is also Wellness Wednesdays’ program director. “I want our participants to education their children and grandchildren on that.’’

Wellness Wednesdays’ next session is April 17 at the Ernest T. Ford Recreation Center in Highland Park. The featured speaker is Janine Green, certified health coach at the SAY Clinic. She’ll be sharing tips on healthy eating and exercise. Click here to register.
