DeLauro and Murphy To Lead Discussion On Women's Health Care Tomorrow

Rosa L. DeLauro, who represents Middletown in the U.S. House, and Chris Murphy, who represents the west-central portion of the state, will be in our city tomorrow. They will lead a panel discussion on the impact that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has had on women’s health care August 30 at 11am. Thanks to the ACA, women’s health is for the first time ever being treated on par with men’s. The panelists will discuss how this has changed the lives of women they work with on a daily basis.

Murphy is running for the U.S. Senate currently held by Joe Lieberman, against Linda McMahon.

DeLauro and Murphy will be joined by Teresa Younger, Executive Director of the Connecticut Permanent Commission on the Status of Women; Dr. Kristen Zarfos, Medical Director of the Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Saint Francis Medical Group; and Margaret Flinter, Senior Vice President and Clinical Director of Community Health Center, Inc.
