AME Church Launches Obamacare Initiative
1/10/2014, 12:44 p.m.
The Sixth Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church has launched an Obamacare Initiative where it will conduct Affordable Care Act workshops daily at different A.M.E. Churches in the Atlanta area.
The A.M.E. Church Obamacare workshops are free and open to the public.
During the month of January, Obamacare workshops will be held throughout the Atlanta area where health care specialists will offer informative PowerPoint presentations, answer questions regarding the new Obamacare law, assist people in seeing whether they qualify for free or subsidized health care, and help people to sign-up to receive health care coverage under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Each of the four weekly Obamacare workshop schedules in January will focus on a different geographical area in Atlanta: East Atlanta (January 6-12), North Atlanta (January 13-19), South Atlanta (January 21-26), and West Atlanta (January 27-February 1). Below is a listing of the dates, times and locations for each weekly schedule, which can also be found at the A.M.E. Church’s Georgia state website: www.ame6.org.
