The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Business program welcomed a guest speaker on Thursday, Oct. 27, to speak with 53 Business students about health insurance and how it relates to individuals and businesses in Idaho. Shad Priest, Director of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs for Regence Blue Shield of Idaho, was invited by CWI Assistant Professor, Joe Welker, to give a presentation on the Affordable Care Act and its potential impact in the Gem State.
“Allowing our students to receive a lecture on the Affordable Care Act from one of the state’s utmost experts is an invaluable gift to students,” Welker says. “Open enrollment for Your Health Idaho opens next week and this lecture allows our students to gain as much information about health insurance as possible. A special thanks to Shad and Regence Health Insurance for presenting this information.”
