Healthcare for Small Business Owners

Bob Mreen, TrueNorth
 Presented Thursday, July 25th at Noon (Central)
 Sponsored by the Iowa Small Business Development Center

With the implementation of some aspects of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act just around the corner, many business owners are anxiously waiting to learn what this legislation will mean for their business, and more importantly, their bottom line. The conflicting information that is available has made it very difficult for small business owners to understand what steps they need to take.

This free webinar, Healthcare Changes for Small Business Owners, will aim to answer these questions and provide small business owners with the information they need to know.
