Speaker to Discuss Health Care Reform

Sidney Watson of Saint Louis University will discuss health care reforms from 7-9 p.m. April 10 in the Baldwin Hall Little Theater.

Attendees will learn about key features of the law, how the law affects college students and young adults and how the comprehensive health insurance reforms will unfold during the coming years.

Before Watson’s talk, students and faculty are invited to a reception with refreshments entitled, “Are You Covered?  What’s Up With Health Care Reform?” at 6 p.m.
