Billed as a discussion on women’s health care, DeLauro and Murphy led a panel of health care professionals including Teresa Younger, executive director of the Connecticut Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, Dr. Kristen Zarfos, medical director of the Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Saint Francis Medical Group, and Margaret Flinter, senior vice president and clinical director of Community Health Center.
The congressmen and panel members made their remarks at the Cross Street Zion Church Thursday to about 20 people.
