Virginia’s secretary of Health and Human Resources will be in Roanoke next week to talk about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Bill Hazel is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
His talk will focus on how Virginians will be affected by the Affordable Care Act, a federal overhaul of the health care system that will require most U.S. citizens to have health insurance while expanding Medicaid and setting up exchanges through which the uninsured can purchase coverage.
Presented by Project Access of the Roanoke Valley, Hazel’s talk will be in the school’s main auditorium. A reception will be held before the speech at 6:15 p.m. in the foyer.
Admission is free, but space is limited. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb. 1.
