What an incredible turnout for our 2016 Senior Expo at Wellsboro Area High School! My thanks to the hundreds of attendees and to the dozens of local businesses, health organizations and government agencies who provided excellent resources.
On May 16, the Pennsylvania Chapters of the Healthcare Information Management System Society (HIMSS) presented Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) with the organization’s first Healthcare Information Technology Legislator of the Year award.

Baker, who serves as chairman of the House Health Committee, was selected as the recipient of the award for his continuous support of the appropriate use of health care information to lower costs, and improve access to quality health care in the Commonwealth.
