TALLAHASSEE, FL (WALB) -

Still confused about what the Affordable Care Act means to you? You can get answers on Saturday.

There will be a town hall meeting from 10am to 2pm at Bethel AME church at 501 West Orange Avenue in Tallahassee.

Even though it's taking place in Florida organizers say the information will benefit South Georgians as well.

The panel will include a former member of the US health advisory committee that helped write the law.

"When you have health care you are more productive in your work place, you have less absenteeism, and thus we have a healthier nation, and with a healthier nation we have a wealthier nation," said event organizer Dr. Linda Walton.

The event is expected to attract at least 1500 people. The first 500 in attendance will receive a complimentary breakfast.
