CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa will host a free educational forum on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Tuesday, Dec. 10, in Ballroom C of Maucker Union. Sessions will be offered at 3 and 7 p.m. and are open to students, faculty, staff and the Cedar Valley community.

Health and Human Services regional director Stephene Moore will present information on the ACA and how to navigate the health insurance marketplace. A Q&A session will follow the presentations. Computer stations will also be available for those interested in enrolling.

Estimates of the number of uninsured U.S. residents include more than 17 million young adults between the ages of 18 and 35. The forums give people an opportunity to learn what the Affordable Care Act means to them and may be of particular interest to college students, and others, who currently don't have or may need health insurance.
