Health leaders from the region and Senator Warner convene for a roundtable discussion

During a recent visit to the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC, U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) engaged with health leaders from the Roanoke Valley in a roundtable discussion. The senator expressed his interest in biotech and its potential role in national security in the future. He emphasized the cutting-edge work being done at the institute and medical school, indicating that increased federal funding for the industry may be on the horizon.

Following his visit to the research institute, Warner made a second stop at Centra Hospital in Lynchburg to address the ongoing opioid epidemic. This demonstrates the senator’s commitment to addressing critical health issues in the region.

Warner’s engagements with health leaders and researchers highlight the importance of innovation and collaboration in advancing healthcare initiatives. By supporting research efforts and addressing public health challenges, valuable progress can be made in improving the well-being of communities in Virginia and beyond.
