With the first phase of enrollment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—"Obamacare"—launching next Tuesday, the people it affects most need to know exactly how it affects them. The uninsured, the underinsured, the self-employed, freelancers, artists, Hidden City editors and contributors, those who simply pay too much for their health insurance: tonight is your crash course.

The Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and State Representative Jordan Harris (PA 186th District) have teamed up for a special town hall this evening in the interest of educating the public. In addition to a detailed Health Insurance Marketplace presentation, a panel of experts will be on hand for an important Q&A session.

The lineup, assembled and moderated by Amanda Kimmel, the Social Services Manager of Specialized Health Services at PHMC, consists of opening speaker Representative Harris, followed by Alvin Kingcade, Clinical Director of the PHMC Care Clinic, and finally, the Q&A session with the following panel: William England, Pennsylvania Director of Enroll America; Carol Rogers, Executive Director of Healthy Philadelphia; Alex Lehr, Technical Assistance and Consultation Director for PHMC; and Kate Kozeniewski, Program Coordinator at Resources for Human Development.

Admission is free and attendance is highly encouraged. It’s this evening from 7–8pm at Marian Anderson Rec Center, at 17th & Fitzwater in the heart of G-Ho.
