DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Health and Human Services Secretary made a house call in the Miami Valley Monday.

Kathleen Sebelius  made a stop at the Dayton Metro Library discussing healthcare enrollment.

The mission is simple.  Enroll residents into the new Affordable Care Act.

Sebelius and democratic Mayor Nan Whaley joined forces highlighting community efforts.

Sebelius was encouraging younger people to sign up.  Mohamed Al-Hamdani, 32, spoke about how important ACA is to him.  He signed up in October and four months later developed a serious medical condition and was hospitalized.  He said he didn’t know what he would do without the ACA.

Our Marsha Bonhart was with Sebilius today.  Her story on 2 NEWS at 5.
