TX (April 17, 2009)- Congressman Joe Barton visited today and met with several ProPath pathologists and staff members to get a hands-on demonstration of the critical and expanding role that pathology plays in patient care. Congressman Barton was greeted and given a tour of ProPath's state-of-the-art medical facilities by cofounder and senior partner E.P. Jenevein, M.D.

At the conclusion of the tour, Congressman Barton provided the following statement, “Health care reform will be a major issue during this session of Congress, one that directly impacts the residents of the 6th District of Texas and people all over the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I am already working on a bipartisan solution to make sure everyone gets the care they deserve. North Texas has become a center for cutting-edge medical care and facilities, and ProPath Laboratory is an important part of our region’s healthcare capabilities. From breast cancer detection to immune disorder discovery, pathology is central to a 21st century health care system, delivering life-saving disease diagnoses and patient-centered treatment options.”
