Students from West Virginia University helped local seniors figure out part of the health care changes today.

Student Pharmacists helped members of Senior Monongalians determine which Medicare program would be best for them.

It was part of the Medicare Part D outreach program, and it was free to anyone who needed help.

"I think it's confusing in general to use a computer, as well as the internet. And there is a lot of information out there about Medicare and Part D prescription plans and it's hard to sort through, especially those who may not be computer literate. So, we're here to help," said Eric Likar, a WVU Student Pharmacist.

The students from WVU's School of Pharmacy donated their time to help seniors Monday.
