Mar 24, 2022 | Ian Goldstein

Washington, DC, March 24, 2022 — In this week’s Podcast from Washington, NACCHO Government Affairs team members Ian Goldstein and Kerry Allen summarize the status of the PREVENT Pandemics Act. They also discuss the administration’s urging of Congress to pass additional COVID-19 emergency supplemental funding. Finally, they cover a study released by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health that identified reports of harassment across local health departments.

Later in the program, in recognition of World TB Day, Ian speaks with Brenden Bedard, Deputy Public Health Director and Director of Community Health Services for Genesee and Orleans Counties, New York. They discuss tuberculosis (TB) programs in his rural jurisdiction that contains a large population of migrant workers and the need to develop partnerships to address TB needs in the community. Brenden also describes how COVID-19 affected his health department’s TB program.
