Affordable Care Act Panel Discussion at ALA
Is your library prepared to deal with the rush of patrons who will need help completing Affordable Care Act health form applications this year? In October, patrons are expected to come to public libraries in great numbers to learn about new insurance requirements and options available. Libraries will need to know about the resources that will help library patrons.
The upcoming American Library Association’s Annual Conference will include a panel discussion entitled, Libraries & Health Insurance: Preparing for October 1. The session will take place Sunday June 30 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm in the McCormick Place Convention Center Room S501BCD. Speakers include Jackie Garner, Medicaid consortium administrator; Susan Hildreth, director of Institute of Museum and Library Services, Ruth Holst, associate director at the National Network of Library of Medicine Greater Midwest Regional Medical Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Kendra Morgan, senior program manager, OCLC Webjunction.
