Sen. Gordon Radio Interview on Public Health Issues

April 11, 2024

According to reports, there is strong bi-partisan support for House Bill 5321: An Act Requiring Newborn Screening for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. If passed, the law would require every newborn in Connecticut to get screened for this starting in July of 2027. We asked Senator Jeff Gordon about the significance of this for families. We also asked about the concerns around hospital consolidations in the state. Sen. Gordon serves on the Public Health Committee and has spent decades of his life as a physician.
