Congressman Christopher Murphy (CT-5) visited the Health Center on Tuesday and met with several individuals to learn about health information technology projects that could be eligible for funding from the Economic Recovery Bill. As a new member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which oversees national health care policy, Murphy pushed for a $19 billion investment in health information technology. During his visit, Murphy also met with researchers and heard about several research initiatives that are critical to the Health Center’s mission and vital to the state’s economy. His visit ended with a tour of the hospital.
