2016 Legislative Oral Health Champion

October 20, 2016

I’m honored to receive the 2016 Legislative Oral Health Champion Award from the Connecticut Oral Health Initiative. This year the legislature passed a Public Health Committee bill (PA 16-4) that will help ensure that public water supplies meet federal recommendations for fluoride levels in drinking water to prevent tooth decay. I will continue to advocate for legislation that promotes better oral health for Connecticut residents.

The Connecticut Oral Health Initiative advocates for oral healthcare for all Connecticut residents. You can learn more about their organization here.
