“Senator Kissel and Friends” Features Doctors from Johnson-Memorial Hospital

February 22, 2006

State Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) welcomed three doctors from Johnson-Memorial Hospital at a taping of his monthly cable program “Senator Kissel and Friends” yesterday evening. Joining Senator Kissel were Dr. Colleen Jambor, Dr. Edward White, and Dr. Herbert DiMeola. The three spoke about the hospital’s new comprehensive breast cancer program, which now offers the same services for breast cancer patients that can be provided at Hartford-area hospitals. The show will air through the month of March on Mondays at 9:30 on Cox Cable Channel 15.

“It was a pleasure having all three doctors on the program and I would like to thank them for taking the time out of their full schedules to lend their expertise,” said Senator Kissel. “I am hopeful that viewers will tune in to learn about these very important new services being provided at Johnson-Memorial for residents in our area of Connecticut.”

Dr. Jambor is the first plastic surgeon on staff on Johnson-Memorial and will be working with women with breast cancer who require reconstructive surgery. Dr. White is board certified in vascular surgery while Dr. DiMeola is board certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology and is the Vice President of Medical Affairs of the Johnson Health Network.

“This was a very interesting program and I learned a great deal from the doctors. I think our viewers will also learn a lot from these three fine physicians,” concluded Senator Kissel.

Senator Kissel is a Deputy Minority Leader and the Ranking Senator on the Judiciary Committee. He is serving his seventh term representing the 7th district communities of East Granby, Enfield, Granby, Somers, Suffield, Windsor, and Windsor Locks.
