On Tuesday, October 22nd the Health Science classes at Hattiesburg High were visited by three members of the Forrest General Hospital business and insurance departments (Pat Riley, Cindi Carter and Roger Houser). They shared with students about the new Affordable Healthcare Act and how it would affect students and their families. Students asked many questions including some about the penalty for not having insurance when they turn 18 and what options there are for acquiring insurance. Students were encouraged to go home and share the information they learned with their parents or guardian.
