Senator Al Franken

In June 2011, U.S. Sen Al Franken visited Children's-Minneapolis to tour the hospital and meet with patients and care givers about issues related to Medicaid and medical education. Franken met with a Children's pediatric resident to discuss the importance of Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education funding (CHGME), a program that provides much needed funding to training pediatric health professionals. See more photos from Franken's visit.
