WATERBURY, Conn. (April 23, 2013) –  In honor of “Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” the Naugatuck Valley Surgical Center invited Teresa LaBarbera of WTNH News 8 to spend a day at work with her dad, Dr. Peter LaBarbera, a Waterbury-based podiatric surgeon specializing in diabetic foot care and sports medicine.

“It was pretty cool to see my dad in action,” said Teresa LaBarbera, who is the morning traffic reporter for News 8’s “Good Morning Connecticut” and host of “Connecticut Style.” During her two-hour visit to NVSC, located at 160 Robbins St., Waterbury, she was able to experience the entire surgical process from “Pre-op” and the Operating Room, all the way hrough to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit. Both father and daughter benefitted from seeing each other in their work roles.
