As the Affordable Care Act continues to make its way slowly, and with significant issues, towards implementation, many Georgia residents are left in the dark about how the upcoming changes to the health care system will affect them. Brenau University, along with the Hall County Chamber of Commerce, has attempted to demystify the new legislation a little by posting a series of videos recorded at the Health Care Reform Symposium on Sept. 18 to our YouTube channel.

The symposium, which was part of a Brenau University Presidential Opportunity Grant awarded to Dr. David Miller, and co-sponsored by the Hall County Chamber, featured Dr. Ed Schrader, Mr. Steve McNeilly, Mr. Rich Sanders, Dr. Phaedra Corso, Mr. Ralph Hudgens and Mr. Rob Fowler speaking on a variety of health care related topics covering employers and health care providers and individuals. See the list below for speakers and their subjects.
