All Town Meetings are free and open to the public. Perry Bryant, Executive Director of West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, will provide an overview of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, followed by panel discussion and question and answer period.

The town meetings culminate with the Health Care Reform Summit on August 30th and 31st at the Charleston Marriott. This two day conference will have national speakers representing consumers and physicians with presentations on how payment reform and delivery system reform will impact West Virginia.

You can read a two page summary of the PPACA and a 32 page comprehensive review of the Act's most important provisions, along with other materials, at www.wvahc.org.
