An informational meeting will be held next week for those interested in better understanding the Affordable Care Act.

Presented by the Indiana Youth Institute, the meeting will address information about the law in a way that is easy for consumers to understand. The forum is open to the entire community, including the youth and others who work to impact the well-being of the youth.

The forum will feature guest speaker Kate Keller, vice president of Policy and External Relations for Interact for Health, formally the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati.

In her current position with Interact for Health, Kate identifies and advocates for health policies that improve the health of children in Cincinnati. She also works to improve access to behavioral health services for school-aged children.

The Affordable Care Act informational program will be held at the Ivy Tech in Batesville on Wednesday, October 16 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Indiana Youth Institute.

Reservations are being accepted until Monday, October 14. Contact Becky Nobbe at ocof@cmhcinc.org to reserve a seat.
