SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – The Wesley Community will host an educational forum discussing how Medicaid may affect care for seniors and their families on Friday, March 28 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Embury Café on The Wesley Community campus and is free and open to the public.
