Rep. Hwang visits Heart Health fair

State Rep. Tony Hwang addressed the crowd of approximately one-hundred people Saturday at Westfield Trumbull Mall, before the start of the walk and spoke of the importance of women’s heart health and his admiration for the service that the St. Vincent’s medical and nursing staff performs for the community.

“The people at Saint Vincent’s are truly exceptional,” said Rep. Hwang. “Not only do they dedicate their professional lives to ensuring our community is healthy, but they have the heart to give up a Saturday morning so that people can come and further their knowledge on proper health care.”  Rep Hwang also renewed his commitment to properly fund and support healthcare organizations in a difficult budgetary environment.  “The critical role of providing healthcare to all people, regardless of their ability to pay, throughout our community is the mission of SVMC.  We need to properly fund our community healthcare organizations and their services.  SVMC’s contribution in saving and extending lives is a mission worthy of our legislative support.”
