The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is a mammoth new law that is changing health care. To better learn the facts -- and dismiss the misconceptions -- you can attend an adult-education seminar presented as part of Winthrop-University Hospital's Mini-Med health education series.

"Obamacare -- An Introduction to Healthcare Reform" brings together experts from different areas of the health care industry, including surgeons, physicians, pharmacists, insurance company representatives and lawyers. A question-and-answer period follows the presentation.

The seminar is Wednesday, 7-9 p.m., at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, legislative chamber, 1550 Franklin Ave., Mineola. The event is free, but registration is required. Call 516-663-2720 or email
