The Trump Budget Proposal and Population Health

By Thomas Bauer Moderator | 20 Mar, 2017

The blue print of the first USA President Trumps budget has raised concerns on many fronts. According to the attached article "The proposed budget would “cripple” science and technology “through short-sighted cuts,” said Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science."

“Biomedical research is not something you can toggle on and toggle off,” said Dr. Landon King, executive vice dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. “The disruption and uncertainty this introduces into the progression of existing work or the initiation of new work is extraordinarily threatening.”

If these changes are implemented, how will they affect the ability of health care professionals ability to meet the global health needs of the patients we serve?
