Webinar: Affordable Health Care Act – Resources for Librarians

Feb 25, 2014 1pm (ET)


This webinar will begin with a brief high-level overview of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and provide participants with information about online resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that can be used to answer questions about ACA. In addition, the speaker will present some non-governmental resources and will allow time for questions and answers at the end of the session.


Non-SLA members: In lieu of a non-member fee, we are asking for a $10 donation to the SLA Illinois Chapter Student Stipend fund. This fund supports student memberships and attendance to the annual conference for local LIS students.
