LTC to Host Affordable Health Care Act Webcast





Lakeshore Technical College will host an interactive webcast on November 18 from 5 pm to 7 pm for anyone interested in learning about the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), scheduled to go into effect at the beginning of 2014. Utilizing the ITV technology that allows LTC to successfully bring learning to students without having to travel, participants can access the interactive webcast from Two Rivers High School, Kiel High School or at the LTC Cleveland campus. The webcast is the kickoff to Wisconsin College ACA Week and is aimed to raise awareness of health care changes through the ACA. It is free and open to the general public.

The webcast, also known as a teach-in session, is a general educational forum, meant to be practical, participatory, and oriented toward action. The webcast will cover useful health facts about the new health insurance options as well as the stories of those affected. Speakers will share the unique perspectives of young adults, government officials, academics, and consumer assistance groups. There will be expert panelists that will engage participants in a question and answer session at the end of the webcast and pizza will be served to participants.

The webcast will be held in room L233 in the Lakeshore building at LTC while Two Rivers High School will hold the webcast in room 304. Kiel High School will host the webcast in room 216. The webcast is a collaborative production between the UW School of Med & Public Health, the UW Population Health Institute, Covering Kids & Families, WI, the Wisconsin Technical College System, UW Colleges, the University of Wisconsin System, and the WI Union Directorate – Society & Politics.
