211583 Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP)
Monday, November 9, 2009: 10:30 AM
As the 2009 American Public Health Association Fellow, the speaker had the opportunity to work on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) during a time when national health reform was being debated. The speaker will discuss how that process worked in the HELP Committee, as well as the role of public health organizations in that process. Although the outcome of that debate is still unknown at printing, the speaker will reflect on her experience and present some specific ways that public health organizations can effectively influence policy in general.
