A message from Shawn:  

I’m so excited to be in Connecticut and humbled by the opportunity to lead this great organization.  In the last two weeks as the legislative session concluded, I’ve been so impressed by how the members worked together to ensure most of our legislative priorities made it to the governor’s desk. 

My goal is to make CHCACT one of the top Primary Care Associations in the country by focusing on the needs of our member health centers as well as our communities and patients.
