    Didn't cover provider network coverage, or allow for questions. Information provided was good as far as it went.

      Check out http://hackercare.org...­ -- Gina was giving out discount codes at the event so I'm fairly sure it's available now. Of course you can contact her as she mentioned in her presentation -- [masked]

      The Covered California website is very good, but you can also talk to a licensed agent for advice and assistance (and there's no cost to use their professional services). We get many calls for assistance like this at my office.

      Shiri, I am not from the city so I used the parking panda app, I found it helpful.

    Interesting topic. Are you going to have a similar presentation for South Bay? Do you plan to post slides/video online? Thanks
