She was also named to the House Committee on Insurance and the House Committee on Courts and Criminal Code.

“My background as a healthcare risk manager will continue to be an asset while serving as chair of the House Committee on Public Health,” Kirchhofer said. “I am confident we will find meaningful solutions to Indiana’s pressing public health concerns, such as improving provider access and addiction treatment options. Committees play an integral role in the legislative process by allowing lawmakers to receive input from the public while tackling complex issues, and I look forward to getting to work.”
