THE BRONX - Bronx residents participated in a Affordable Care Act information session at Montefiore Medical Center Monday. 

Bronx Rep. Charlie Rangel was the keynote speaker. He was joined by several other local leaders who helped people make sense of the new health care system and understand all the options available for them. 

Americans have until March 31 to sign up for President Barack Obama's signature health law, otherwise they risk getting fined and not being able to receive any coverage. 

The educational event was held at the Moses Campus from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
