    SANTA ROSA — St. Joseph Health System–Sonoma County will hold a forum on the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and how it impacts consumers.

    The forum, “Understanding Health Care Reform and the Affordable Care Act,” will be available to the public at both Santa Rosa Memorial and Petaluma Valley hospitals.  Speakers include Jo Sandersfeld, vice president of Mission Integration, Mark Knight, vice president of Strategic Services, and Christopher Manson, regional director of government relations.

    In a 40-minute presentation followed by an open period for audience questions and answers, the forum will focus on what  health care consumers can expect over the next several years as provisions of the landmark legislation take effect nationwide.  Audience members will learn about the timeline for implementation of various provisions, about new benefits and what will be offered, and about the cost.

    The forum will be held from 6:30–7:30 p.m. on the following dates at the two hospitals:

    • Sept 14 at conference rooms B–D at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.
    • Sept. 21 in Groverman Hall at Petaluma Valley Hospital.

      Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have constantly noticed that the majority of people are desperate to lose weight simply because wish to show up slim in addition to looking attractive. Nevertheless, they do not constantly realize that there are many benefits for losing weight also. Doctors insist that obese people have problems with a variety of health conditions that can be perfectely attributed to their particular excess weight. Thankfully that people who definitely are overweight as well as suffering from different diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their own illnesses by way of losing weight. It’s possible to see a slow but identifiable improvement with health as soon as even a moderate amount of fat reduction is attained.
