East Meadow, NY……..Arthur A. Gianelli, President/CEO of the NuHealth System, announces free educational seminars in partnership with Healthfirst, to provide information on health care reform, the Affordable Care Act and the NY State of Health Marketplace. These seminars are designed to assist our uninsured consumers in selecting and purchasing health insurance plans during the open enrollment period which begins on October 1, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014. Healthfirst specialists will conduct various sessions at the Nassau University Medical Center.
