Dr. Robert Fuller, chief of service in the UConn Health Emergency Department, has been named one of the Connecticut Hospital Association’s 2010 "Healthcare Heroes."

Fuller was one of 10 Connecticut health care professionals so recognized for their work both in their field and in the community at large. He was among the first physicians to arrive in Port-au-Prince on a mission with the International Medical Corps following the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January.

Fuller is one of two physicians to be presented with Healthcare Hero Awards at the CHA’s annual meeting June 30.
