Affordable Care Act -- Four Upcoming Opportunities To Get Acquainted With It

For those who are interested in learning more about Obamacare and how it may affect your healthcare options, there are four events where you can learn about it in the upcoming two weeks:
  • The Uptown Baptist Church Holistic Health Fair:  "Many uninsured residents of Uptown will be introduced to the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace for the very first time on Saturday, October 12 as Uptown Baptist Church (UBC) hosts its annual Holistic Wellness Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at 1011 W.
