The hottest topic in the country today is-- what’s next for the nation’s healthcare system?  Will Obamacare survive or be repealed? Will the republicans blow it and take themselves out in the midterms and seriously damage the President? A lot of moving parts on the national scene but what about the direct impact to local folks?  Well, according to a news announcement from the Yakima Valley Libraries, there will be a number of local workshops to help get out important information.

The press release reads, “Classes will be conducted by staff from the Medicare Health Alliance, whose goal is, “to help teach various audiences about important topics related to aging, retirement planning, and healthcare coverage.”

“These workshops are a fantastic opportunity for folks to come with questions about Medicare, or to learn about financial planning for retirement, in addition to topics like fraud prevention,” said Krystal Corbray, programming and marketing librarian. “This is valuable information that we’re pleased to be able to help provide to the public, at no cost to them.”
