Students Benefit from Congressman Phil Roe's Visit to the Campus

Oct 14, 2013

Congressman Phil Roe, M.D., visited the Bristol Campus (Tennessee) on Wednesday, September 4th.  Congressman Roe mentioned that his experience of being a practicing physician for 31 years impacts his role as representative of the 1st District of Tennessee.  He spoke to students about current events in Washington, D.C., including the chemical weapons conflict in Syria and the current state of the economy.  He asked for a show of hands on the question of whether or not students felt the United States should take military action against the Syrian government. 

Congressman Roe explained that as representative of the 1st District, it is important for him to know where the people that he represents, including National College students, stand on important issues.  After his presentation, he gave students the opportunity to ask him questions.  The Congressman responded to inquiries about his political plans for the future, his projection for the local economy, and the possible impact of new legislation on the healthcare industry.
