The Affordable Care Act – Simplified!
Everyone is curious about the Affordable Care Act and St. Louis Public Library is committed to helping you understand it better by presenting the "Affordable Care Act – Simplified," the first presentation of the library’s new Consumer Health Information Speakers Series.
Two presentations will be held in Central Library's new 250-seat, state-of-the-art auditorium at 1301 Olive Street, in downtown St. Louis. The first event features Akeiisa Coleman, health policy associate for the Missouri Foundation for Health, speaking from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10. A second presentation features Ryan Barker, vice president of health policy at the Missouri Foundation for Health, speaking from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, September 14.
Watch for more speaking engagements on timely health-related topics in 2014. And check out the blog’s Upcoming Events page for additional health-related programs, such as the Sixth Annual Living Life Expo on October 12 at the Baden Branch. As always, a full list of SLPL events is available at http://www.slpl.org/events/calendar.asp
We’ve also got a page dedicated to information about the Affordable Care Act, including links to documents that explain how the Health Insurance Marketplace works, how the Affordable Care Act is impacting the people of Missouri, links to the actual enrollment forms, and even a link to a searchable, full-text copy of the Affordable Care Act as it was passed in March 2012. We’ll keep updating the page with more information as it becomes available, so keep checking back!
