A seminar at James Madison University helped students and faculty learn more about the Affordable Care Act.
Dr. David Cockney, an associate professor of health administration, discussed with the standing-room-only crowd the impact of the Affordable Care Act on students, faculty and small businesses. The largest impact the Affordable Care Act has on college-aged students is the ability to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.
"I think there are some good aspects, and I think there are some that maybe we could do without, but all in all, I think it might be a good thing to catch up with the rest of the world," said Alex Charbeneau, a management and human resources student.
