DENVER — A law student who made headlines when radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh criticized her opinion on contraception health coverage is in Denver to speak at a health care panel.

Sandra Fluke landed in the spotlight when she appeared before Congress testifying about her troubles paying for contraception without insurance coverage. Limbaugh called her a “slut,” prompting a national backlash. President Barack Obama personally called the law student to offer support.

Fluke is speaking at a health care panel Friday morning with Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette of Denver. The panel marks the second anniversary of the health care law. Progressives are promoting the law as it heads to a legal challenge next week at the U.S. Supreme Court.
