PANAMA CITY BEACH - "Obamacare" is now the law of the land, but a lot of people still don't know how it works or how it's going to effect them and their businesses.
Gulf Coast State College is trying to help bridge the information gap, staging a two day 'Surviving and Thriving' symposium at the Bay Point Wyndham Resort.
Area experts addressed the needs of 3-different groups, consumers, business owners, and healthcare providers. Related businesses also set-up exhibits to help answer questions.
Al McCambry of GCSC said, "Depending on your particular circumstance, the impact to you is still not quite known. But there's a lot of questions being asked and we're hoping to answer those questions on an individual basis. It may make sense for you to go down Path A, Path B, or Path C and by the time you leave here, hopefully you'll have a better understanding on which path is gonna be best for you."
You still have time to attend tomorrow's sessions; registration begins at 8:00 Friday morning, with the presentations lasting until 3:00 Friday afternoon.
