Congresswoman Louise Slaughter will meet with members of the media today to provide an update on her rehabilitation following a recent broken leg. She will be joined by Stephen L. Kates, M.D., professor in the URMC Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, who will be on hand to discuss the progress of her recovery and details on her aggressive rehab regimen.
Due to her good health and physical fitness, doctors expect Slaughter to make an "excellent and functional" recovery from the broken left leg, which occurred on April 2 as she attend an event honoring women in politics.
Slaughter continues to maintain her duties while in between rehabilitation sessions, and appreciates her staff. She is working closely with her colleagues in Congress along with managing the affairs of her offices in Rochester, Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Washington, D.C.
