HARTFORD – The Radiological Society of Connecticut has recognized State Rep. Christie Carpino, an active member of the Public Health Committee, for her advocacy of patients and legislation that will provide greater access to life-saving breast cancer screenings. The radiologists announced Rep. Carpino as a recipient of their “Patient Hero” award at their semi-annual membership meeting.

The technology, called Breast Tomosynthesis, is a three dimensional mammogram which enables the radiologist to better determine if small cancers are present in the breast. The test has been shown to reduce, by 40 percent, patient callbacks for an additional test due to the uncertainty of images.

HARTFORD – The National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) is proud to announce State Representative Christie Carpino (Cromwell/Portland) as a 2018 Elected Women of Excellence Award winner.

According to NFWL, this award was created to identify women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities. These pacesetters have engendered an environment where women can now serve in public office and fight for the issues they are passionate about.

House Republican Leader, Themis Klarides, stated, “Rep. Carpino continually fights for gender equality and has been a strong advocate for the advancement of women’s rights through her legislative work. She has supported measures to expand options to patients with breast cancer, ensure women and families continue to have access to healthcare, and to provide greater resources to victims of domestic violence. I congratulate her on this achievement.”
