A wonderful day on Thursday, 03/16/2017, at the State Capital. It was the Connecticut State Medical Society's (CSMS) annual Physicians' Day. Many doctors and medical students from across CT took the day to advocate for the medical profession.
When doctors stand up for healthcare, they stand up for patient care.
I was honored as CSMS President to lead things for the day.
I had a great opportunity to join State Reps. Boyd and Rovero at the opening ceremony of the House by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
I also had a great opportunity to meet with State Sen. Somers and State Reps. Petit and Steinberg, members of the Public Health Committee.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
I wore blue on March 3rd to highlight it.
I made the state news!
It is not everyday that I make the front page of the Hartford Courant, but on January 13th, 2017, I did just that. I was quoted as President of the Connecticut State Medical Society about plans in Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement program in its place. On January 14th, 2017, I participated in a press conference at the Community Health Center in Middletown, CT with Congressman Joe Courtney, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, and Lt Governor Nancy Wyman. We talked about the ACA repeal effort. Check out the pictures.
No matter your opinions about the ACA, it is the law of the land, and it is commonsense that if Congress were to repeal it, that there needs to be a replacement plan ready to go, otherwise it causes unnecessary and undue hardship for many people. Let's all work together to keep the parts of the ACA that are good and to fix the parts of it that are bad.
