SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A nonprofit group that's funding a nationwide campaign to inform the public about President Barack Obama's health law has hired organizers in Springfield and Peoria.

Enroll America announced this week that an enrollment workshop Sunday at the Springfield Urban League will kick off the group's "Get Covered America" campaign in central Illinois.

The group also is organizing an event Sunday in south suburban Chicago that combines a workout with a fitness trainer with information on new health insurance options under the national law.

Enroll America is sponsoring the "Fitness Boot Camp" event Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Markham Park District building on Richmond Avenue.

Personal trainer Siddiqu (Sih-DEEK') Muhammad will lead a workout and encourage participants to get health insurance.
