Steve Griffin | The Salt Lake Tribune The Salt Lake Tribune and KCPW hosted a town hall in October about the Affordable Care Act. A panel of experts including Nathan Checketts, state health department, Rep. Jim Dunnigan, Jason Stevenson, Utah Health Policy Project and insurance agent Celia Nash answered questions from the audience at the City Library in downtown Salt Lake City. KCPW broadcast the discussion live.

Any question about the Affordable Care Act is fair game at a Salt Lake Tribune/KCPW town hall that gets under way at 7 p.m. in the Nancy Tessman Auditorium at the Salt Lake Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City.

The Tribune’s Jennifer Napier-Pearce will moderate the discussion and take questions during the event, which will feature these panelists:

• Rep. Jim Dunnigan, R-Taylorsville

• Jason Stevenson, Utah Health Policy Project

• Celia Nash, Team Nash Insurance

• Nathan Checketts, Utah Department of Health.

If you’re unable to attend in person, the town hall will be broadcast live on KCPW 88.3/105.3 FM or you can hear it here.

If you’re listening rather than attending in person, feel free to submit questions using a #TribTalk hashtag on Twitter or by sending an email to

The town hall is just one piece of The Tribune’s comprehensive look at the new law and its implementation.

Stories published in recent weeks include a guide to Utah’s exchange, a consumer primer on the ACA, a look at uninsured young adults and their obligations under the law and an analysis of how the law is affecting small business.

We’ve looked at what you’ll pay under Utah’s exchange and reported on the enrollment period’s rocky start.

In addition, through our Trib Talk video chats at, Jennifer Napier-Pearce has provided live access to experts answering questions on many of these topics.
