Connecticut is a state rich with U.S. history. Students studying here can visit Mark Twain’s Hartford home where he created the literary characters Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. Also nearby is the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, where visitors can learn all about the famous author and her novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which was instrumental in shaping U.S. society and culture. NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine's health center partner is in Middletown, the hub of Middlesex County, located on the Connecticut River, with easy access to major highways, airports, railroads and other modes of transportation. The city's 42 square miles include rural, suburban and urban settings, an historic downtown and large city-owned parks and open spaces. The poverty rate, about 9% in Connecticut, is lower than in most states, but the rate of growth is alarming, up from 6.8% in 1990. In 2013, 9.4% of the state’s residents had no health insurance.
