JACKSONVILLE — Stephanie Raymer, a Regional Partnership Specialist with the Health and Human Services Commission, will field questions about the Affordable Care Act during a 10 a.m. session Thursday at First Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville.

According to executive director Allison Hale of H.O.P.E., which is hosting the event, “during the last  few weeks, individuals have been turning to us for answers to their most pressing questions regarding the ACA,” and staff members knew that Raymer would be the perfect resource for “the most reliable and factual information possible.”

The session is part of H.O.P.E.'s Life Enrich-ment series, which regularly brings in speakers to address topics of concern to clients.

In this instance, Raymer's visit hopefully will “clear up any confusion that may still exist in our general understanding of the Affordable Care Act, Hale said.
