KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Affordable Care Act might be confusing to some people, but there are organizations making an effort to help Kalamazoo County residents figure it all out. Bronson Community Health's Doctor Bill Mayer says that a group called Enroll Kalamazoo is putting on a few events in coming weeks to teach people how to navigate their way around the new federal healthcare exchange, Healthcare.gov.

"A number of organizations in Kalamazoo County have gotten together to form Enroll Kalamazoo," Mayer told WKZO. "We know that roughly one out of every eight people in Kalamazoo County does not have any health insurance, and many others are struggling."

Among the several events for the public to attend are a meeting at the Oshtemo Community Center this Wednesday, which runs from eleven AM to five PM, and one at the Portage Public Library on February 19th, also from eleven to five PM.
