I recently attended a seminar (advertised in local paper and held in hotel ballroom..) sponsored by an organization called the Senior Education Council from LA, CA.

The presenter, and president, Mark Diamond told a packed room of seniors that there was only one way to protect one's lifetime assets from the risk of nursing home costs or the expense resulting from catastrophic illness. He and his reps were willing to set up appointment with the attendees in order to explain this secret to them.

I think most Fools will agree that you're unlikely to find worthwhile financial advice in a hotel ballroom.

The best strategy is to enjoy the free food and if they have an open bar, so much the better. But refrain from buying into any of the products offered.
