CHA Issue-Based Forum: Reproductive Rights and Gender Conforming Surgery Within Connecticut
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Location: Connecticut Hospital Association, 110 Barnes Road, Wallingford, CT 06492

There is no fee for this event.

The Connecticut Attorney General William Tong and representatives from his office will be presenting on HB 5414 (PA 22-19), An Act Concerning The Provision Of Protections For Persons Receiving And Providing Reproductive Health Care Services In The State And Access To Reproductive Health Care Services In The State.  The presentation will focus on provisions of the law, the role of the Attorney General’s Office and issues which may arise.  They will be joined by Representative Jeffrey Currey (D-East Hartford) key sponsor of the legislation.

The program will also identify existing policies and procedures that hospitals and other providers should review to determine if updates are needed.

This training session is designed for those responsible for their hospital or health system’s policies related to reproductive and gender conforming services, including compliance, risk, and legal departments.

William Tong is the 25th Attorney General to serve the State of Connecticut.  Assuming office in January 2019, Attorney General Tong is the first Asian American elected at the statewide level in Connecticut.  As the son of immigrants and small business owners, he knows first-hand the constant pressure on Connecticut families by the ever-increasing cost of living in the state.  Prior to his service as Attorney General, William Tong worked as a litigator with private firms for 18 years before being elected as a State Representative in the Connecticut General Assembly—a seat he held for 12 years and in which he was the chairman of the Judiciary and Banking Committees.

There is no fee to attend; this program is open to all CHA members.   

Registration for this event is now closed.
