being an artist of any kind and maintaining healthcare coverage, let alone a savings or retirement plan, is damn near impossible. so while we wait for obamacare to kick in, the good people of Healthy SF have decided to step up and lend a helping hand. they recently expanded their income illegibility requirements and are looking to enroll even more san francisco based residents artists than ever before. so in order to help facilitate this process, the Community Music Forum is offering a free seminar this saturday, (january 8th from 2-3:30 pm), at the Porto Franco Art Parlor to teach artists how to access these services for little or no money. a representative from Healthy SF will be there to fill you in on all the details, (including the enrollment process, qualifications, what medications and services are covered, etc.), and answer any questions you may have. There will even be a few doctors on hand to… well, i don’t know, impress you with their white coats. RSVP for the event here and start off 2011 with a bit of practical reassurance, (something every artist desperately needs anyway.)
