“AARP thanks Representative Conroy for championing legislation that removes barriers to full practice authority for advanced practice registered nurses, expanding access to high-quality health care for Connecticut residents,” Nora Duncan, state director of AARP, which serves nearly 600,000 members age 50 and older in Connecticut, said in a release. “She provided integral leadership to pass legislation last year that will help make the lives of Connecticut’s family caregivers – and those that they care for – a little bit easier.”
“I am committed to working for seniors,” Conroy said in a release. “From healthcare issues, to aging at home to making our town centers easier to navigate, I want to make sure seniors have the support they need.”
The presentation was held at the Seymour Senior Center.
