Don’t mess with our kids’ education

Connecticut was once the envy of the country for its low costs (no state income tax), its top education and best quality of life. We have since lost our low-cost status and top leaders are now putting our educational system at risk.  There is growing outrage that Hartford could remove local control over Connecticut’s schools. Parents are swiftly mobilizing, organizing and taking action to send a strong message to legislators: Hands off our schools! Don’t mess with our kids’ education!”

Primary care MDs often overworked, dissatisfied, burned out

I agree with Joy Elwell APRN. She is right to say that nurse practitioners can help take care of Connecticut’s primary care needs. I don’t see nurse practitioners as competing with doctors. I see them as partners in transforming the primary care workforce. It is still a work in progress. If done right Connecticut will have taken a giant step forward in making primary care more available to its residents.
