There will be a second opportunity to take part in the free webinar on March 30th 2010 at 10:00 AM. Other topics to be discussed will be why the Healthcare Reform is not going to lower the costs for health insurance or healthcare in the US and how it may lead to long waiting periods for surgical procedures as seen in countries such as the UK and Canada.
