It would be a bit of an understatement to say that a lot of confusion, distortion, and misinformation still colors public discussion of the federal health-care law passed last year. So if you're still wondering what it means for you, your family, or your business, you might benefit from the day-long seminar being offered this weekend by the Tennessee Health Care Campaign. THCC, a group dedicated to "working for guaranteed affordable choice," will host the event from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday at St. James Episcopal Church, 1101 N. Broadway.
The agenda includes a keynote address from Dr. Carole Myers, the health-policy fellow at the Howard H. Baker Center for Public Policy; small group discussions on specific areas of interest, ranging from the law's effects on senior citizens to the concerns of employers and the unemployed; and a panel discussion on the Health Insurance Exchange that Tennessee, like all states, is supposed to create under the law.
Registration is $20 per person or $30 per couple, and includes breakfast, lunch, and all materials. For information, call (877) 431-7083 or go to thcc2.org.
