(WLNS) - A local non-profit has taken the initiative to be the link between mid-Michiganders and vital health resources that could increase the quality of life for many local families.

GLAAHI, the Greater Lansing African American Health Institute helps families to increase the quality of life by helping to with free, affordable health care. GLAAHI works with Ingham County and Blue Cross to help get people health information.

There is also a program to encourage and help people to quit smoking.

"We want to make sure that people are aware of the options they have with the Affordable Care Act and get healthcare coverage to get healthcare when they need it, regular doctor's visits and be more healthy, so we're thrilled to partner with GLAAHI to make sure people are more aware of the options they have today," said Todd Anderson, Blue Cross Blue Shield.

GLAAHI will meet Monday night at 6 p.m. at 2511 Reo Rd. and the public is welcome. Experts will be available to help people learn about health care options.
