In this week’s episode of Podcast from Washington, NACCHO government affairs team members Ian Goldstein and Adriane Casalotti discuss a new proposal for the 21st Century Cures 2.0 discussion draft released by Reps. Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Fred Upton (R-MI). They discuss the public health provisions in the bill and its chances of passage. They also discuss the FY2022 appropriations process, as Congress breaks for the July 4 recess.
Later in the program, Ian Goldstein speaks with Craig Braquet about the All of Us Research Program, which seeks to break down barriers that exist in medical research studies by expanding the diversity in research and clinical trials to include individuals with disabilities. They discuss the importance of people with disabilities’ participation in the program.
