Doctor to discuss Affordable Care Act provisions

Special to the Review
The Athens Review

Athens — With the provisions of the Affordable Care Act beginning to take effect, there may be more questions than answers.

Trinity Valley Community College will be hosting Athens doctor Douglas Curran at 7 p.m. Monday in the college’s Cafeteria Conference Room.

Curran will be talking to students and the community about how the changes in medical insurance requirements will affect Americans.

“We started getting questions from students about how this would affect them,” said TVCC Director of Student Activities Cortney Curran. “Some of them who are uninsured now wanted to know how they could purchase medical insurance.”

So Cortney Curran, the daughter of Dr. Curran, asked her father if he would be willing to come and address any questions students might have.

“This might be useful for the community as well,” said Cortney Curran. “So we are inviting anyone who would like to come and ask questions to attend.”

Dr. Curran has practiced medicine in Athens for the past 34 years. He is a past President of the Texas Academy of Family Practice, and currently serves as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Texas Medical Association.

Dr. Curran is a member of the Henderson County Medical Society, and serves in the Texas Medical Association House of Delegates as the Henderson County representative.
