NVCC’s President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. stated “This is a significant moment as the promise of a better tomorrow for our students shines brightly and concretely before us.  The NVCC Center for Health Services will bring a sense of powerful completion to the east end of our Waterbury campus.  NVCC’s Allied Health programs are outstanding and deserve the additional support and better space that the new building will provide. The support of Governor Malloy and our legislative delegation signifies faith in the good work we do at the College and the importance of allied health careers to our state and service region.”
