ADEA Advocacy and Government Relations Portfolio — June 2015

ADEA is seeing very promising results of our advocacy efforts in early drafts of the appropriations bill from the House of Representatives. Earlier this year, ADEA submitted written testimony to both the House of Representatives and the Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, which is charged with appropriating monies to a variety of health-related federal programs. 

Spring 2015: Change and Innovation on the Global Stage
