Rep. Giegler attends Danbury medical program launch

 Rep. Giegler, together with fellow legislative and public health leaders, celebrated the launch of a brand new Primary Care Medical Residency Program in Danbury – the only such program in our State.

Dr. John Murphy – CEO of Western Conn. Health Network, Rep. David Scribner, Rep. Jan Giegler, Dr. Rhamin Ahmadi and Rep. Richard Smith

The program’s purpose is to train graduate medical students going in to primary care – a national shortage area – and in turn to grow Connecticut’s pool of expertly trained primary care physicians in the Greater Danbury area. The program, which is expected to create over 25 permanent jobs, is supported through a collaboration between the Connecticut Institute for Communities, the Greater Danbury Community Health Center, Danbury Hospital, the Western Connecticut Health Network and the University of Vermont Medical School.

Rep. Giegler was joined at the event by Reps. David Scribner and Richard Smith, State Senator Michael McLachlan and Governor Dannel Malloy.
