On April 10th, President Obama announced his 2014 budget. Many organizations and agencies within health and human services have shared their thoughts on its potential impact.
As public health professionals, we must stay on top of these discussions and be aware of the political changes that influence the direction of our field.
Our team has collected a selection of blog posts, online articles and videos to give our OMP participants a starting point to having educated conversations amongst their colleagues and peers.
The original U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: FY 2014 President’s Budget for HHS (4/10/2013) may be a lot of material to read through. The following list will showcase some highlights related to public health:
