A 90-minute webinar about farm families and the Affordable Care Act will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18.
Participants will learn how the Affordable Care Act affects farm families as individual consumers and as business operators, and also how it will affect their farmworkers.
The curriculum — You and Health Insurance: Making a Smart Choice for Farm Families — was developed by Barbara O’Neill of Rutgers University and Roberta Riportella of Kansas State University, and is now ready for pilot testing nationwide.
The same slides that are in the curriculum will be shown on the webinar.
O’Neill is an Extension specialist in financial resource management at Rutgers, and Riportella is a Kansas Health Foundation professor of community health.
The webinar will be broadcast at https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/communities.
