K&L Gates Triage: Opioid Epidemic: Update on Policy Issues in Washington, DC.
In the third episode of our series on the national opioid crisis, Amanda Makki and Corbin Santo provide an overview of how the Trump Administration and Congress may address the opioid epidemic this year.
Following the establishment of a presidential commission on drug addiction and the opioid crisis in 2017, additional federal grant funding and numerous congressional committee hearings on the issue in the early part of 2018 may prompt action from the new Secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, additional changes to the federal budget, and constituent pressure on representatives to develop legislative solutions to the opioid crisis later this year.
Triage: Rapid Legal Lessons for Busy Health Care Professionals has been created by K&L Gates to convey information about developments in health law through short podcasts.
If you work in the health care industry, you have grown accustomed to frequent changes in laws and regulations. On some days, it may seem like an insurmountable task to keep up with every change, especially as a new presidential administration and new policies take shape.
The K&L Gates Health Care Practice will regularly create Triage podcasts to help you learn about the latest developments in health law. Our lawyers will identify the most important changes and analyze the impact of these changes on our clients.
