ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Students at Darton College got in on the discussion about healthcare ON Wednesday.

A campus club put together the forum with panelists who shared their views about reform.

It was an opportunity for any who came to ask questions and give their input.

They addressed Issues from how insuring millions more Americans will affect the quality of healthcare to the staggering costs of such a plan.

Some students went to get more information on the proposed changes.

"I'm a skeptic, but I look at the healthcare system a lot and I've been following the debate on TV and I came here with a set notion to listen and understand what people had to say," said Courtney Burnette, Darton Freshman.

The Darton Democrat, Independent, and Republican Team hosted that forum.
