What/Who:
The countdown to the last few weeks of open enrollment for individuals and families has finally begun, so mark your calendars for this Saturday, March 1 as we host our final ward enrollment day in Ward 1. This weekend’s enrollment day will take place at Mount Pleasant Library located at 3136 16th Street, NW and will allow residents to sign-up for health insurance without leaving the comfort of their neighborhood.
