5:30pm - 7:00pm
"Join the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) for an informative, bilingual town hall of the Affordable Care Act. Latinos represent one third of the nation’s uninsured yet Latinos have higher rates of chronic diseases and are less likely to receive the preventative care they need. Considering the current state of Latino health, it is crucial that the community participate in the newly reformed healthcare system. In order to ensure that the Latino community has access to important information, LULAC is hosting a health town hall where experts, community leaders, and promot@res will discuss the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, how to navigate the Healthcare Marketplace, and the Open Enrollment process – which will remain open until March 31, 2014."
