Among other visits, C. Wright Pinson, deputy vice chancellor for health affairs; Jeff Balser, vice chancellor for health affairs; David Mills, assistant director for state policy and legislative affairs; and Beth Fortune, vice chancellor for public affairs, visited with Speaker of the House of Representatives Beth Harwell in her office.
